Two major talents in contemporary Celtic piping, Scotland’s Ross Ainslie (Radio 2 Musician of the Year Award nominee) and Tyrone-born Jarlath Henderson (BBC Young Musician of the Year) 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, border pipes 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.
Individually they’re two of the best players around, but together they create a sound built on an astonishing intuition. Their sound bursts with emotion and energy – a fusion of pipes and flutes that pushes the boundaries of what the instruments can achieve. The result is a vibrant mix of new and original compositions, songs and traditional tunes.
Ross and Jarlath have fast become one of the most talked about combinations around, wowing audiences wherever they play.
