Barry Shears—A Cape Breton Piper

Traditional dance music. Rousing music by a wonderful musician.

This is the real MacCoy. Hot piping, great back up. If you think, ugh, Highland piping, then think again. The rhythm Shears puts into these tunes will heat the house.
Barry has three books of tunes available on his web site, and I hear he’s working on a scholarly study of Cape Breton piping and pipers.
