"Jimi McRae [aka Jimi The Piper] has shifted up a gear, taking an evolutionary leap with Earthdance. Although the stories inspiring the tunes remain local, Earthdance has a world music feel mixed with full on funk rock attitude. Tartan stereotypes are tossed aside as McRae's skill proves the pipes as powerful, moving and diverse as any instrument."
