PERTHSHIRE musical hot-shots Ross Ainslie and Ali Hutton feature on the debut album released yesterday by Celtic supergroup The Treacherous Orchestra.

Titled ‘Origins’, the album is released on Navigator Records.

Ali, originally from Methven, and Ross, from Bridge of Earn, feature on the new album playing a mixture of instruments including Highland pipes, border pipes, whistles and guitar. Both pupils of the late Perthshire piping legend Gordon Duncan, Ross and Ali are highly in-demand instrumentalists on the Scottish music scene and have just completed an exhaustive tour of duty at this year’s Celtic Connections Festival, which also included the live launch of Origins at a sell-out gig.
