Ross Ainslie and Jarlath Henderson with Ally Hutton

Individually they’re two of the best players around but collectively they create a chemistry which is almost magic.Two of the most major talents in contemporary Celtic piping, Scotland’s Ross Ainslie and Tyrone-born Jarlath Henderson first met back in 2003 at the William Kennedy Piping Festival in Armagh.  After taking their time to hone and perfect their unique partnership of Scottish bagpipes and Irish uilleann pipes, each also playing a variety of whistles, the pair exploded onto the scene with 2009’s stunning debut album, Partners in Crime. Taking a couple of years off, Radio 2 Musician of the Year Award nominee Ross performed with Salsa Celtica, The Treacherous Orchestra and Dougie Maclean whilst Jarlath became a doctor. Ross and Jarlath will be backed by the wonderfully talented Ali Hutton on guitar.
