Agreed.  The Graysteil material is a collaboration with Bill Taylor, the
expert on Scottish and Welsh harp (including the ap Huw manuscript);
excellent stuff.  MacKillop also has a fine book of Scottish lute music
arrangements out, but it doesn't appear to be in print.  If you're searching
for it, though, try under Rob rather than Ron.

Ron MacKillop has put a bunch of free mp3s of his lute & early guitar
playing at:

This guy is a professional; I own his Graysteil album, which has a
Scottish ballad "Graysteil" (1497) matched with the music "Grays Tale"
from the Straloch Lute Book (1627). Great stuff.
