Composer Barbara Gray and bagpipe virtuoso Wilbert Garvin collaborated on this disc of Celtic music, played on Garvin's pipes and Gray's keyboards, with guitars (by Mudd Wallace), viola (by Clifford Lowry), and bones (by Neil Hall), and singing by Norman Richardson; think of acoustic Enya and you've got the picture, all deeply atmospheric and. evocative of a long-distant past in the history of civilization

Now a duo called Ceol na gCapall has blended the uilleann pipes with keyboards for soothing reflection or introspection. The music is written by Barbara Gray, who also plays keyboards on the album. Several guest musicians provide string, percussion and occasional vocal layers to the sound. Gray, in her liner notes, describes the album as "Celtic music. mainly of a tranquil nature. It's definitely something new, neither traditional nor purely ambient.
Wilbert Garvin took up the pipes in 1963. He served on the Board of Na Píobairí Uilleann for two spells, from 1996 to 2002, and from 2009 to 2014. He is an author, illustrator and designer. He wrote and designed the book The Irish Pipes – their construction and maintenance, the first-ever published work on the subject. He is a member of two traditional groups : Ceol na gapall, who have brought out a CD and booklet entitled Breath of Fresh Air on which he plays the uilleann pipes, and Ailsa, who have brought out two CDs and booklets – Misty Burn and Sam M’Guffin’s Kitchen, on which he plays the uilleann pipes, scottish small pipes and whistle. In all of these projects.

Picnic – A Breath of Fresh Air is a sampler issued by the Harvest Records label, originally released in 1970 and notable for including the previously unreleased Pink Floyd song, "Embryo". The similarly-entitled A Breath of Fresh Air – A Harvest Records Anthology 1969–1974 released on 14 May 2007 borrowed most of the original title, but had only three tracks in common with its precursor (Pink Floyd's "Embryo", Panama Limited's "Round and Round", and Quatermass' "Black Sheep of the Family").
