I initially came across The Rogues years ago within Texas Renaissance Festival. My old musical organization shared a stage together. I usually liked bagpipe songs, nevertheless Rogues changed every thing for me. They made myself love bagpipe music.
Their records range from the old-fashioned bagpipe tunes towards not-so-traditional. And it's really the later that drew me to them. Their particular record 5.0 blew me personally away once I heard what you could really do with bagpipes. It absolutely wasnot just bagpipes. It had been SO much more.
That's what drew us to their particular bagpipe Christmas songs record, Hellbound Sleigh. It is their particular tenth record album, and it's not only bagpipes. It is filled with musical unexpected situations from full on Highland bagpipes to smallpipes and flute by EJ Jones to Scottish fiddle by Miriam-Rose Leduc for your requirements title it. It's these surpises which makes them the best band on my bagpipe music deals of this Irish & Celtic musical Podcast.
It's as a result Hellbound Sleigh is in regular rotation back at my Celtic Christmas time playlist.
