Re: A chanter for smallpipes with normally spaced holes?

Dunfion small pipe chanters in A are advertised as the same spacing as GHB chanters. I have no experience with them. Have any of you tried one? How was your experience?

Re: Interesting use of Canntaireachd

It works very well for human babies as well. Years ago I used to sing my children to sleep singing canntaireachd.
They both liked The Old Woman's Lullaby best.

Re: tune names help

The first march played by Hamish Moore is John Macmillan of Barra. It's in book 1 of Donald MacLeod's collection.
Don't know the other tune by Gary West.

Battle of the Somme

92 years ago today was the first day of the Battle of the Somme. There were almost 58,000 British casualties that first day. Here's a dram to their memory. May God bless them all.
