Pibroch in a concert context

There has been some discussion on here before, about getting this music into the ears of “normal” audiences. I’m a harper, not a piper, and so I play harp versions of these tunes. This is a lunchtime concert I played last week, of “traditional” Irish and Scottish tunes done in the style of 200 years ago, on a big brass-strung Irish harp played with the tips of the fingers (rather than the more archaic fingernail style that is more common nowadays on wire-strung harp)

I played a pibroch as the middle item in the set. I’d appreciate any feedback on how this kind of format works.
