Default Piobaireachd Duet 'Lacrimae'

Willie McCallum and Jim McGillivray with Craig Muirhead will be recording my new composition Lacrimae in March. The link below takes you to the Indiegogo page where there is more information. It's quite a task playing music normally played by solo bagpipe, with someone else playing harmony. There is a Ground, Dithis Doub. Taor Doub. Crunluath Doub. Crunluath a Mach and repeat of Ground. It's a long time since on this very Forum you all encouraged me to try writing and Sheep in Buchts Kye in Fiels came to fruition. Since then Song of the Yellow Jessamine, Lament for the Old Man, Black Haired Hector, Moon Cradle and Alba Dreams. And now Lacrimae. Thank you all for your support with it all.

This is an exciting project, and I hope many of you will support it. It is another example of how vibrant and alive pibroch is today.

Please join her effort and support the art.

Is 'piobaireachd duet' an oxymoron? I've been wondering all day. Because it has been played solo, did anyone say it should be/had to be?

I was excited, thrilled, when I heard the band play a piobaireachd in their Medley at The Worlds. (Can't think of the band at the moment.)

It was the most innovative thing I'd heard in a long time.

Band after band playing the hammering pentatonic hornpipe/reel things to march in. Band after band switching between 4/4 and 3/4 in the middle of dance-tempo tunes. Band after band doing gimmicky transitions. Band after band doing a "reprise" at the end, with some pipers playing a fast dance tune while other play an air thing.

Then... the piobaireachd, with crunluaths and all. What a breath of fresh air. It was fantastic.

So I look forward to hearing this project.

Yes that sounds fabulous Richard. Lacrimae is coming along. I heard Jim McGillivray's interpretation of the melody today for the first time, and it brought me out in goosebumps. Jim is getting to grips with the melody first before switching to the harmony. And a new member of the team Alister Sinclair will be taking photographs on the day of the recording. Only seven weeks to go, but still a lot of fundraising to go!

This piobaireachd is crying to be heard

Just look at those names expected to deliver it

I hope the goal for funding this new piece is soon reached, and I can look forward to enjoying the music of 'Lacrimae'
