Default Re: Lament at funerals

My favorite is Gordon Duncan's The Sleeping Tune but when given the choice by the client I will also often opt for Going Home or Hector the Hero

I more often get asked to pipe at funerals, and memorials for men. I don't know that I've ever played a military, police, or fire dept. funeral for a woman. I did have a female EMT one time. I get several requests per year to play at funerals for women though. The most recent was back in the Fall, and the family asked for Mull of Kintyre for that one.

Mostly just AG at internment. But on the walk-up gathering, usually Cro Chinn Taile. The pibroch hiG's really get the joint jumping. If there is a big crowd strolling along, I put in T and C variations of the 2nd part..

Greetings to Barry, and to All,

Casting back... over Time... I would guess-ti-mate...
that for me it has been about 25 to 30% for women...
and the rest for men.

And of course... year to year... these things vary...

Regards to All,


My friends all know,
With what a brave carouse...
