Weavers of the Tartan and the PIPIN’ HOT album were actually the product of a previous bagpipe album Scott had recorded back in 1984. The name of this first album was “Weave of the Tartan” by the Cawthons.
Scott was unable to promote this album due to circumstances arising at the time, and the project was put on the back shelf. Years went by when Scott noticed his original masters were deteriorating. He sent them away to be restored. As he listened to these restored masters, Scott felt that the arrangements and sound of his music were, in his own words, “pretty cheesy.”

Most people are familiar with “Amazing Grace”, the bagpipe melody that bands often play at military funerals. However, this tune is not Scottish; it came to the bagpipe by way of England. The author and lyricist wrote this song aboard a slave ship bound for home. Although this popular song soon gained a strong following in Protestant churches, this haunting melody has lyrics that speak neither of Scotland nor of the lives of people who created the Great Highland bagpipes.
