Default Re: Donegal Pipers, New York City

Agree with el gaitero...the sample is reminiscent of many recordings of the era...including some recordings of Regimental Pipe bands of high repute that I have ...recording techniques were poor in those days...something to keep in mind when evaluating 50 years later...just to add to the earlier thread discussion, I'm told by one of the Donegal band members that was present during the infamous QE II kerfuffle that Willie Joe Cunningham was the head of the County Donegal Association at the time and was the driving force behind the band uniforms being confiscated.
