AllMusic Review by

The nice thing about randomly grabbing one of the seemingly endless lines of collections that boast fiddles and pipes is that you almost always get exactly what the wrapper shouts. St. Clair's extraordinarily non-deceptively titled Irish Fiddles & Pipes is no exception. The first 12 cuts feature traditional airs and marches from the Emerald Girls Pipe Band. There are no keyboards, overdubs, or singing -- just pipes and drums. The remainder of the 26 tracks are spent with Liam Rowsome's fiddle. He is accompanied on occasion by a piano and acoustic guitar. Life is rarely this simple.
