John A. MacLellan performs a variety of traditional bagpipe songs, called "piobaireachd". These songs, as Ewan explains in an introduction presented along with Henry Cowell (see liner notes), were mostly traditional war songs (some were celebration songs for marriage or birth) that had "come down through the years as unwritten melody, freely flowing, and subject to the personal interpretation of each performer." the liner notes also include information and history on the instrument itself, as well as a short bio on MacLellan.
