Andrew and Margaret Watchorn Playing pipes and fiddle

“Their duo work is simply beautiful throughout. Their smallpipes and fiddle tunes are object lessons in direct, subtle playing. Examples of this exceptional quality abound. These are seriously good players.”

“For me, the stars of the show are Andrew and Margaret Watchorn, who duet on pipes and fiddle and who add to the enjoyment of well-played tunes with some excellent harmonies.”

“Andrew demonstrates his mastery of the pipes, with a driving and rhythmic musical style. In a similar understated style, Margaret’s fiddle playing complements and balances throughout. Harmonies are a strong feature of the recording – the interplay between fiddle and pipes is tremendous, and demonstrates how both musicians understand each other’s playing. This recording is Northumbrian music of the highest quality.”

“We all enjoyed your concert… We are inspired, and your CD is playing for the second time this morning as I write!”

“Thank you for your superb playing at our daughter’s wedding…. The pipes enhance any gathering in the North-East, but yours was of the highest professional quality and we all appreciated equally the spirit in which you played.”

One thing I got 100% right: the Watchorns! I wouldn’t even
consider doing the event again without you. You were marvellous.
So many thanks once again.”

Your music is absolutely wonderful and was praised by everyone. A lot of the guests had never previously heard of the Northumbrian Pipes. Needless to say, they were bowled over. Together with the fiddle, you helped to lift spirits and make our day very memorable.”
