The Moidart Collection (3rd edition) (sheet music book and CD)
A mixture of traditional tunes from Scotland and Ireland, and twentieth century compositions, 31 of which are Allan's own.
The 3rd edition of Allan MacDonald's Moidart Collection, A Cheud Ceud (The First Hundred), comprised of one hundred tunes, including a piobaireachd. An audio CD of the tunes accompanies the book.
The first publication of Allan's very popular collection was in 1989. He has dispensed with dotted quavers and semi-quavers in the reels to reflect his own 'open' style of playing.
Allan MacDonald was raised in the small community of Glenuig, in a Gaelic-speaking area of the West Highlands. He began piping at an early age and pursued a competitive career which included winning the Inverness Clasp on two occasions. He was taught by P/M John MacKenzie and also by Bob Nicol of Ballater and Roddy MacDonald of South Uist.
After becoming ambivalent towards the competitive discipline of piping, he encouraged the introduction of alternative styles of playing Ceol Beag ('light music') from the 1970s onwards. In the classical genre of Ceol Mor (piobaireachd), he explored the extent to which modern styles of playing differed from those of the 18th century. In his M Litt thesis, completed at Edinburgh University's School of Scottish Studies, he studied the relationship between piobaireachd and Gaelic language rhythms in song, placing the tunes in their original socio-linguistic context.
A4 paperback, landscape format.

Learn To Play The Bagpipe With The Easy Method
Author Bruce Campbell says: “I started teaching over 20 years using this unique method and found that it was hugely successful with advanced players. Over the years I have modified it to make it suitable for beginners and ‘struggling’ pipers. I could never understand why other teachers thought, and many still do, that elements like timing and phrasing as well as playing on the beat come at a later stage. Why not teach them from the start, using the rhythmic qualities of music to help a piper improve. That is what the EAST METHOD is - a logical progression into music which also allows the student to memorise tunes in a fraction of the time that so-called ‘conventional teaching’ takes. The method might be easy but the results are staggering.”
This book specialises in teaching the FOUNDATION STAGES of piping. It is the first time that a whole book has been devoted to getting the most important aspects of piping correct.
