Well, I've been quiet for a while, eh? I can assure you all it's for a good reason: I've been working away this winter getting the new set of (flat) pipes I made for myself late in 2015 reeded, fettled, and well played in. I'm loving the results, and you can see a quick video of the new set here.

I'll be taking the pipes on their maiden tour around New England in late March and April, with dates in Vermont, Maine, Connecticut, New Hampshire, and Boston. I'll be in the company of Eric McDonald, and we'll be playing material off of our recent album, "The Sunny Hills", as well as some newer material. A full list of dates can be found here.

Hope to see all of you out there!

After a busy few months that have produced a brand new set of pipes for myself (as well as a few other things you'll be hearing about soon), I'm happy to be hopping on a plane bound for Northern California. I'm off to Santa Cruz for to teach at a weekend of workshops and perform at a house concert.

I'll be teaching a day-long piping workshop on Saturday the 7th, a whistle and flute workshop on Sunday the 8th, and playing a solo house concert on the same Sunday evening. If you'd like to attend any of this, just drop Jay Salter a line at jaysalter@cruzio.com or 831.429.5836, or get in touch with me here. 

Hope to see you out there, California! I'm looking forward to sharing the tunes I picked up during my summer tours and autumnal archive trawling. I can guarantee strathspeys.

My summer adventures continue with a host of dates around Prince Edward Island and Nova Scotia this July, with appearances at PEI Fiddle Camp in Charlottetown and the Boxwood Festival in Lunenburg. I'll be performing and giving workshops at both of these events, so check out my upcoming dates for details if you're at all interested. In other news, reviews of The Sunny Hills are starting to roll in; recently, Dan Neely of The Irish Echo was kind enough to say a few words about us. 

If you still haven't heard the album or managed to get your hands on a copy, head over to willandericmusic.com to hear some tracks and order yourself one.
