Excerpt from: Interconnected-the Celtic sound
...our ancestors were hardy souls. And the language of their homeland explains a lot of the yearning, the longing for what was left behind: its in the songs - the epic proportions of the struggle, the majesty of the individual lives, the rugged grandeur, the glorious countryside. Scotlands By Yon Bonnie Banks. Irelands Danny Boy. The pipes are calling, from ridge to ridge, and down the mountainside- Scotland and Ireland are in my blood and I am blessed. Our musical roots are descended from an oral tradition, and we are all blessed by its survival. - James Wallace
