Default Fred Morrison

I've just come back from spending the last 3 hours watching Fred Morrison live in concert.
At half time, I whizzed out and scored myself a copy of his CD, managed to Double D-Throw myself in his changing room, and ask for his autograph {which he signed quite gleefully}.

I asked him what the full set of ivory pipes he was playing and he replied "Henderson, Glasgow - they're over 100 years". I knew they were old. We talked about his chanter which was a Naill and we also chatted a little about sterling silver as well. Bliss!
In all my entire blonde and nervousness, I forgot to ask about his reeds.

The performance was simply outstanding, and I'm totally gobsmacked.
25 marks out of 10.

I too saw Fred at the Aros centre on Skye and was amazed, what a talent.
Anybody with an interest in piping should see him if given the chance.
