Review: David Faulkner & Steve Turner - More Tunes About Baggage and Hills


English and Border Music, 1625 to 2017 David Faulkner (border pipes) and Steve Turner (piano accordion) have made an excellent album showcasing a range of tunes that sit well on border pipes (the Jon Swayne design) either of their own composition or carefully chosen from a range of English and northern border sources from the 17th to the 19th centuries.┬áDavid, as you doubtless know, is a very fine piper and he puts in exemplary performances here on a range of 3⁄2 and 5⁄2 hornpipes, jigs, airs and marches on G, D and low C pipes.
