Re: Cold weather playing

I don't pipe in -20C any more, too many frozen parts from my younger days that go numb way too soon.


I do; however, play in our Nov 11th parades (N of the St. Lawrence) and have found that now,...

Does it have a name?

I recently began playing in front of judges (at some local events) - a learning experience for sure. As I have spent quite some time as a corps piper in a community band, I have some habits...

Reducing leakage of an L&M Scotian

All

I've been playing an L & M Scotian for a while (poor memory, more than 5 probably under 10 years). I like the feel; it's been fairly robust (seams, zippers tie ins etc all sound), but it is...

Drones "heavy sounding"

I recently had a comment from an experienced piper that my drones although together were "heavy sounding".

I'm not 100% sure what the comment means. I assume that it has to do with volume, but...

Re: Celtic ancestry

I'm what in my area is considered a latecomer; Canadian since 1820. My patronymic from Skye. The Jedburgh is a result of post '15 wanderings.

However, I consider the key to it all is here and...

Re: Piping at Canada's 150th

I had an outdoor gig. The scotch mist turned into a downpour and it got cancelled. Got to stay home then go to an indoor party where I wasn't required to perform.

Re: Tunes with a haunting or magical quality to them

I've always thought Chi Mi a Morbheanna (Mist Covered Mountains) payed slowly was sufficiently eerie because of its use of B.

Re: Looking for an Old Movie

Re: The Third Hand

If you can find a stray piece of washing machine water hose, cut a piece to cover the appropriate holes then split it.

A very workable substitute. I used one for a while and it worked.
