Re: On competition - is music a sport

So I suppose this competition is sporting and not in the arts.

Re: Going Pro

Maybe you could just go play at that other ice cream shop to see if they too would give you ice cream cones. That or pay you to stop.

I read all the excellent replies, but I keep coming back to this simple statement. I am wondering who made you stop playing because you accepted ice cream cones. The copyright police? The...

Re: Balmoral bonnet recommendation

Does it matter what the size and color of the toorie is? black, blue or red?

Does the Balmoral always have the big toorie and the glen the little one? Or is no toorie okay?

Re: The Piano Guys Performance

They sell those things in tourist shops all over Scotland. That's whose ordering them (including the novelty ones). This isn't the 80s. If someone is serious about piping, a two second Google...

Re: Pakistani bagpipes hurt by Brexit?!

You want sympathy for what is basically a cheap knock-off of a legitimate industry by taking advantage of non-knowledgeable buyers who think they are getting Scottish bagpipes?
