The Rogues are live in Canada having a hell of a good time with bagpipes, percussion, comedy, dancing and some good friends.
"The Rogues Live in Canada, Eh? What would a Texas pipe band be doing as a ceilidh in Burlington, Ontario? Well, judging from the sound of this, having one hell of a good time.
With two Highland pipers (Lars Sloan and Jimmy Mitchell) and two percussionists (Randy Wothke and Bryan Blaylock), the music the Rogues play is anything but subtle.
Recorded live in front of an enthusiastic audience, the band powers its way through a number of sets of bagpipe tunes, many of which they composed themselves.
There are a few breaks for songs, but the emphasis is on the pipes (as well it should be), as both Sloan and Mitchell are fine players.
The set winds down, as any good ceilidh should, with renditions of "Scotland the Brave" and "Amazing Grace".
Play this loud, it's guaranteed to annoy the neighbors and the cats!" - (JLE) - Dirty Linen Magazine - October/November '98 #78
