One of the tunes that I fell in love with at the first hearing. I heard Kathryn Tickell's The Return when she and her new band came to Cambridge, UK in 2013. The tune since then has haunted me around that I wanted to do something about it. I hope my interpretation of the tune has captured the original content and achieved a sense of what inspired Kathryn Tickell to write this tune to play on Northumbrian pipe.
