10 tracks: Train Journey North * The Wildcat * Leaving Uist * Seonaidh's Tune * Nameless * Outlands * Downtown * Kansas City Hornpipe * Drumcross * The Hard Drive.

The brilliant and multifaceted piper and whistle player, whose roots lie in the Outer Hebridean island of Uist.

Bagpipes and bluegrass might seem unlikely musical bedfellows, but for Fred Morrison - one of Celtic music's most profoundly skilled and audaciously inventive exponents - they form a wholly natural alliance.

This album project features such top Americana luminaries as producer Gary Paczosa (Dolly Parton, Dixie Chicks, Nickel Creek), banjo and guitar ace Ron Block (Alison Krauss & Union Station), and Grammy-winning multi-instrumentalist Tim O'Brien - setting out to explore the inherent connections Morrison perceives between their traditions and his own.

Also featuring guitarist Matheu Watson.

"An incredible album that really stirs the blood..." (Daily Record)

"A joyous, celebratory album that exudes sheer exhilaration..." (Rock 'n' Reel)

"Outlands captures piping ace Fred Morrison in his free-flowing, expressive pomp on Highland pipes and their Irish and lowland cousins, as well as magnificently soulful low whistle. Great playing all round, with the title track and Kansas City Hornpipe especially giving tacit permission, just this once, to yell yee-haw at a piper..." (The Herald)

Excellent!

This is a must have - in my opinion. Something quite different. Excellent variety. I find myself listening to some of the tunes on repeat.

Maestro at work!

Fred is the man.... and this is the album. The title track and "The Hard Drive" are standout genius. Catch Fred live if you can - if not.... buy this!
