Re: Anyone know the name of this tune?

That setting is from the recent Edinburgh Tattoo's. I've played it and I can honestly say that once it gets to the Jig Time part, it is absolutely awful to memorize. I would advise against it!

Re: Saudi Arabian Bagpipes during Trump Reception?

I swear it was a Jordanian Pipe Band I saw at the 2010 Edinburgh Military Tattoo. And they had some lovely (temperamental) horses too.

Re: Name of tune - excellent playing.

Re: News of a Wedding?

If you can find us a video on youtube etc, then I'm sure we can identify it. Otherwise I am doubtful we can be of any help.

Re: Tune name that follows Mhairis Wedding?

Yes its true that stuff WILL and does get dropped or even rearranged. I played at the REMT in Wellington, NZ earlier this year and we had 1 if not 2 tunes dropped due to time constraints.

Does anyone know of a tune similar to Rebel Piper?

Similar sort of feel and skill level ideally. Quite like the tune now after playing it a fair bit, and our drums give it a good rhythm.

Also wondering what could follow it.

Cheers

Rebel Piper

Well,
I've been tasked with finding this tune for a big band performance (specifically as a reel *gulp*).

We all know its Royal Dragoon Guards but besides that, info seems a bit scarce.
