The sight and sound of Alan Stivell’s squealing bagpipes in a rock fusion band set off warning bells, but I warmed to this Breton who’s taking traditional instruments such as the Celtic harp into new territory. He may be camera-shy, but the camera is also guilty of over-indulging big-name collaborators like Simple Minds’s Jim Kerr. There’s very decent concert footage, though.
