The Young Ones features three of the brightest young and upcoming pipers from Scotland, Northern Ireland and the Irish Republic.
Alen Tully is a piper with the St Laurence O’Toole Pipe Band from Dublin. He is the son of O’Toole’s well known Pipe Major Terry Tully. He began his piping career at the age of 7 years old, and at the age of 21 has become the youngest player ever in Ireland, and only the second ever, to win the Junior, Intermediate and Senior All-Ireland Championship titles back to back. He has also been appointed Pipe Sergeant of the band for the 2005 season.
Andrew Carlisle from Ballygown, Northern Ireland, is 18 years old and graduated through Broomhedge and Ravara Pipe Bands to the present World Champions, The Field Marshall Montgomery. He has won many top prizes in the solo field, for example Ulster and All Ireland titles for MSR and Piobaireachd - Champion of Champion titles, plus scholarships to USA summer schools, also feature in his impressive CV. His tutors, Sam Connolly, Fred Russell, Andrew Wright and Richard Parkes, can all share in the credit of guiding Andrew to his current achievements.
Callum Beaumont began playing when he was seven, under the tuition of Bert Smith. At the age of ten he began receiving Piobaireachd tuition from Tom Speirs. In 2004 he started going to Willie McCallum to improve his light music. When he was eleven he joined Lothian and Borders Police Pipe Band and played there for three seasons. 2005 is his second season at The House of Edgar Shotts and Dykehead Pipe Band, where he won his first major Championship in Turiff. Over the past three years he has won the under seventeen Scottish Championships twice, and the Champion of Champions once at Carnoustie. His two biggest wins to date in 2005 are the McGregor Memorial at the Argyllshire Gathering and overall winner of the B and C Grade Piobaireachd competitions run by the CPA. He also has a long list of Juvenile prizes including Cowal Gold Medals.
"We are treated to a high standard of music and tonal quality in this excellent recording. All three provide a wide variety of entertaining tunes which I am sure will be a winner with 'piping pundits' worldwide." (P/M Malcolm M Mackenzie)
