The late Scottish musician Martyn Bennett was a formidable piper, DJ, producer and live performer who passed away (aged 33) in 2005.

In January 2014, the Celtic Connections Festival in Glasgow marked the 10th anniversary of his untimely passing with an orchestral recreation of his last album, Grit, arranged by Greg Lawson - a long-time friend of Bennett and a notable musician in his own right.

Trevor Reekie talks to Lawson about the musical legacy of his late, great collaborator.
