Hammered

by Wicked Tinkers

They have been blending the emotion and power of the Great Highland Bagpipe with the pounding of raw tribal rhythms for over a decade and have recently added the haunting sound of the Bronze-Age Irish Horn.

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Wicked Tinkers are three roving musicians who play the music of Scotland, Ireland, and the many nations on which the Gael have left their mark. We all heard the Great Highland Bagpipes as kids and were hooked! The pipes brought us together and keep us coming back for more. We simply play what we hear. So lower your standards and join us on a wild ride!

Most of the tunes on this CD are from the Highlands of Scotland, where the music we love was born. A few of the tunes are Irish (Warren's heritage), who we feel are brothers to the Scots. Some tunes are Canadian (where our own John MacAdams hails from), a very Scottish place. A wee bit from Australia rounds out the lot.

We're proud of the heritage that produces such powerfully beautiful music. We owe a great debt of gratitude to our ancestors and their sacrifices - there were times when the pipes were nearly wiped out. Today more Scottish bagpipes are played around the world than ever before.

Highland pipes are in an ancient key that speaks more to the gut than to logic. The pipes somehow bridge the gap between where we've been and where we are going. They are a piece of the past that is very much alive, and we are working to propel them into the future.

This is our second CD. We are thankful to all our fans for their support of this unusual music. It is they who help us continue.

It's been said that the beautiful, high tones of Scottish bagpipes can be heard by the gods. Let's hope we aren't keeping them up at night.
