Re: Celtic multi-instrumentalists?

Highland pipes and tin whistle, probably about 80% of what we do are pipe tunes, the other 20% whistle. The reason I learned the tin whistle is to add new and different songs, break up the set,...

Re: Atherton Pipes - Ross Bag

I have a set of Kron pipes made when Atherton was there, it has the same issue with the Ross bag. I really liked the Ross bag, but with the Texas weather, the tape did not enjoy the heat and...

Re: Recordings with no copyrights

I would just find a few recordings you think will work, contact the person/band who recorded them, ask permission. Also, let them know you will credit them in the video.

Since it sounds like this...

I'll have to get some measurements for you, but every section of my drones are stamped "C. E. Kron New York".

Re: What kind of Kron bagpipe is this?

I play a set of Kron made in 1998-99 and to my untrained eye those look very similar. FWIW

Re: Pipe cases that actually fit Ross guts

My choice is a bit unconventional and I do get some odd looks, but the best bag I have found is a baseball or softball bag. Plenty of room for your pipes and accessories. They come in a variety of...

Re: How to play with other instruments?

I was going to suggest something similar to what Patrick said. I might suggest you try to sort of play off the other instruments since you most likely will not be able to all play at the same time. ...

Re: Life after a deceased Pipe and Drum band

I played in a pipe band for several years, then due to travel distance, schedules, and typical life getting in the way I became a solo piper. I can't really say I missed being in a pipe band all...

Re: Sport Kilt?

Do you happen to just like a particular kilt from Sport Kilt, or is your goal to find a less expensive kilt?

Re: Any st Patricks day events in Houston, TX?

I would agree, the Mucky Duck is your best bet for some traditional music and great piping. Pretty sure under age is welcome, but agree that you might as well call and see. The music starts around...

Re: Huntsville Texas

I'm about 30 mins from there. It's about an hour north of Houston so there are a lot of pipers within an hour or so.

Re: Dropkick Murphys

Tin whistle is pretty common in Celtic rock these days, thanks to the Pogues perhaps. Either way, as a piper you are lucky to be able to play on half the songs due to the key they are in, or notes...

Re: Question for the Celtic Punk Rockers

Thanks for the positive feed back! It's been fun branching out with the pipes and playing some non pipe music as well as converting familiar pipe tunes into rock versions. Kirby, if you see us out...

Re: Question for the Celtic Punk Rockers

I forgot to mention that the guitars can also just use a Capo on the first fret to play sharp on tunes with bagpipes in them. We have a few things up on youtube if you want to see/hear what we do. ...

Re: Why bother with reeds anymore?

I'm not quite a Bob Dylan, or close to being an EJ Jones for that matter, so I think it's more I need the fact that I am playing "acoustic" bagpipes to help impress my...

Re: Why bother with reeds anymore?

I've played with my celtic rock band for two years now, and yes the pipes do make it a lot more challenging. I always have two chanters set up and ready to play so I can swap out if need. We...
