Also featuring traditional and historical tunes from Cape Breton Island, Scotland, Ireland and Northumberland, with a good measure of original music in the traditional style. Hensold is the leading Northumbrian smallpiper in North America; for the past 20 years he has performed and taught in England, Scotland, Japan, Canada, and across the United States.
