ALISTAIR ANDERSON

As a touring soloist, with no less than 37 tours of the USA, 5 trips to Australia and countless European tours to his credit, Alistair Anderson is internationally acknowledged as the master of the English Concertina and a fine exponent of the Northumbrian Pipes. He delights audiences with the lyrical slow airs and lively dance tunes of Northumberland and with his own compositions, which have grown out of his love of traditional music.

Hethpool Linn – small waterfall and swimming spot – hope you like the tune. Keep well all.

Dan Walsh & Alistair Anderson. ‘Ivaldo Mendonca’s Welcome To Alnwick’ and ‘Big Dance Reel’ – both composed by Alistair Anderson

Am about to try to upload a video of a couple of pipe tunes. For a recent trip to Orkney I wanted to play a tune of mine Eynhallow (one of the Orkney Islands) and wrote another tune to go with it. Asking audiences in Orkney to give the new tune a name we eventually decided on Eyne Helga the ancient name for the island Eynhallow – suggested by Donnie Grieve. Barbra and Donnie befriended us when we came up to Orkney with Joe and Hannah Hutton, Will and Nancy Taylor and Will Atkinson a good few years ago. It was great to see them again tis trip. Happy memories. Hope you like the tunes – I will try to put the dots up – I'm afraid Im still struggling with this tec stuff – has taken weeks to get this far with the video……
