Re: Hebrew/ Israeli tunes

Well Bill, David has said it twice - that he doesn't see anything wrong with it whether musically or culturally. I agree with him. And also his point that playing Hebrew/Jewish tunes on pipes would...

Re: Good pipe bag seasoning?

Re: Scottish Smallpipe Pipe Bags...

I think you are covered - Canmore has a no zip/grommets hybrid which you should be able to use for smallpipes. You just need the confidence to cut the hole into an unsullied bag :grin:
