Re: Book: PIPERS MEETING New Tunes from the Campbell Canntaireachd

I think Dr. Jack and Patrick have earned the right to do whatever they like with their expertise in the autumn of their piping years. Better to push on the current leadership of the PS for a...

Re: Kilgour Edinburgh pipes

I recently purchased the set the St James family offered and it is virtually unplayed, and family lore claims it to be the last set he made. Chanter stamped G. Kilgour Strathspey. Tied to an L&M...

Re: ABW-Ebony Distinction

Re: How many sets do you own?

Ask David at Naills if he still has some old spun nickel ferrules. He made me a set of stocks for an ebony Lawrie set with tapered ferrules I sold recently.

Re: Lament at funerals

Mostly just AG at internment. But on the walk-up gathering, usually Cro Chinn Taile. The pibroch hiG's really get the joint jumping. If there is a big crowd strolling along, I put in T and C...

Re: "B" Flat Set up
