Re: Stolen smallpipes in Tucson, AZ

I'm unsure. As far as I'm aware, the authorities around Tucson are working on that. From what I'm told, the Ebay poster is cooperating ... so I would imagine they're working to determine where he got...

Re: Pipers in the Watertown / Boston area (Massachusetts)

It varies, and it only seems to be getting worse.

It's a damn-fine blog sir. The research you've put in is a tremendous service, and it was really helpful to me as I was stumbling along into finding the sound I'm currently enjoying.
