Oy…………….

What’s the point in posting a recording here, and making no comment whatsoever on either the musicians - [ you don’t even say what instruments they play, to start with ] - or the nature or quality of the music on the recording ?

Re: Calum Stewart And Heikki Bourgault

This is the first album by Scottish flute and uillean pipes player Calum Stewart, and Breton guitarist Heikki Bourgault. It is comprised mainly of their own compositions. According to Calum, this album represents an intense period of time spent with the flute - the search for a personal voice. From my point of view, Calum is leading the return of the flute to the Scottish traditional scene, after its little presence for many years…

Re: Calum Stewart And Heikki Bourgault

Agree absolutely, that for Scottish traditional music on a "simple-system" flute, Calum is "the man".
Certainly, the flute has "little presence" in Scottish traditional music compared to Ireland, but you do get this occasionally nowadays, something which wouldn’t have happened 10 years ago :

My regular Monday night session in Aberdeen usually has 3 or more flutes, and we recently held what was possibly the biggest ever concert of traditional music devoted solely to flute in Scotland, comprising over 12 flute players, in Edinburgh 3 weeks ago. There are some very good players here, absolutely dedicated to re-establishing the flute as a Scottish traditional instrument.
Thanks for taking the time to comment on this recording, "javivr". It is of course, an excellent collection of music, played by 2 of the finest musicians around.

Re: Calum Stewart And Heikki Bourgault

I’ve been looking for both cd’s by Calum Stewart And Heikki Bourgault but they are not for sale anywhere.
I’ve contacted by Calum & Heikki and they have confirmed they are no longer available which is a shame since from what I’ve heard on youtube they albums sound great.

Is it out of order to ask if anybody could send me the mp3’s from these albums if you have them?

Re: Calum Stewart And Heikki Bourgault

I should add this would only be a stop gap until the cd’s become available again!

Re: Calum Stewart And Heikki Bourgault

You might be able to contact one of the two musicians and ask to buy a digital mp3 of the two CD’s. Have done this a few times myself, and it’s worked out so far.
