Re: WarMac Pipe Chanters

Was there ever a Warmac wooden chanter? I bought one once (so described)to replace my Hardie chanters. Maybe it was plastic? Good chanter though. Cheers, Garry.

Re: Audience health issue

Could be right, Rick. I know of a cardiac patient who was told by her cardiologist not to go to rock concerts. She does not have a pacemaker though. Ask your friendly cardiologist.

Re: Traditional Piper's Toast?

Just ask whomever it was who asked you. They may have in mind a tune to honour the bride and groom. Maybe "I have a wife o' my ain" Just guessing. Good luck with it.
