Manx composition played at Edinburgh Tattoo

Peddyr Cubberley's 'Kinnoull' used by USA group

A Manx musician's composition is set to be played at the Royal Edinburgh Tattoo.

'Kinnoull' will be performed as part of a set by Middlesex County Volunteers Fifes & Drums, from Boston in the USA, at this month's festival.

It was written by trad musician Peddyr Cubberley, from Ramsey, in 1992.

Cubberley says it was inspired by a trip to Scotland - Kinnoull Hill overlooks the city of Perth and the River Tay, the view of which was the birthplace of the piece.

The track has also been played and recorded by Manx group Barrule, as well as the Scottish Power Pipe band.
