Feeling a bit camera shy


Spraoi meld the best of the celtic traditions from Cape Breton, the Ottawa valley and abroad creating a cutting edge sound that is absolutely traditional yet can walk onto any world music stage. Central to the sound is the piping of Kelly Hood who is recognised as being one of North America's finest all round pipers.
