I think Evan MacRae is on the right. But I'm not certain -- it was years ago I saw him and met him (I'm going partially by some other photos of him I found on the internet).

Yes on the right.

Here's a clipping about him



and on the cover



I did this thread some time back, The Iconography Of Evan MacRae. I add to it from time to time when I discover new things with his image

(Due to my closing my Photobucket account most of the photos are gone)

http://forums.bobdunsire.com/forums/...d.php?t=128975

The thread was about how the photo below, taken during the period when the pipers of The Cameron Highlanders wore Royal Stewart tartan, crops up over and over, on tea-towels, ash trays, postcards, pottery, almost anything.

Not quite that, to my ear anyhow. It's more like the chanter and the drones ring with each other more, resonate or come more alive, on some notes more than others.

It's interesting how you can switch the same chanter and reed between two different sets of drones and hear how differently the various notes of the chanter are supported. The two sets of pipes I switch between, these Lawries and the old Starcks, are attractive to me because of how strongly the drones resonate with the note F.

Seems to me that all drones ring well with Low A, C, and E. It's the other notes, B, D, F, and High G that seem to vary so much from pipe to pipe.

That's just my experience, other people will probably feel differently.
