I am asked from time to time to help with a recording by a group that's not a pipe band, like a solo singer or a rock band. These opportunities are fantastic, and I love thinking of what great things I can do with traditional tunes that otherwise might not get a different treatment.
I try and work with the artists to create something interesting and fun - and the results are always wonderful.
And so, my advice for today is: Say yes. You'll be glad you did.
