Although born and raised near Glasgow, it’s the celebrated Gaelic piping tradition of his father’s native South Uist in the Outer Hebrides that forms the bedrock of Morrison’s intensely expressive, uniquely adventurous style.
His first-love instrument remains the great Highland bagpipes, however over the years his mastery has expanded to encompass whistles, Scottish smallpipes, or reelpipes (Morrison being a pivotal populariser of this once-rare variety) and Irish uilleann pipes. He was also one of the first Scottish artists to forge dynamic links with his Celtic cousins in Brittany and north-west Spain, adding further to his repertoire of influences and tunes.
