Pibroch MacKenzie: The Mull Fiddler (1969)

Pibroch MacKenzie: The Mull Fiddler (Waverley ZLP 2115, 1969)

Alex "Pibroch" MacKenzie played with accordionist Bobby MacLeod, and like MacLeod was from the island of Mull. He recorded at least two solo LPs, and appeared as a guest on many more. This is the only solo album I have, but I will prepare a compilation of bits and pieces of his recordings at a later date. Unfortunately, I know very little about Pibroch MacKenzie, and it would appear that not much is known generally. I'll be happy to be proved wrong.

  1. Hi,

    I've recently started getting into West Highland fiddling, and I'd love to hear this one. Unfortunately it seems to have disappeared. Any chance of a re-post?

    Thanks a million.


  2. I knew his daughter, Annie when she stayed on Saltspring Isl, British Columbia in 1974. I believe she had been living in Ontario prior to that. I would love to catch up with her if anyone knows her wheteabouts.
