My daughter plays the pipes. With three drones and chanter it is a feat on its own to keep them all going at a steady tone.

I have to confess I've been to the World Pipe Band Chamionships in Glasgow a few times, the Cowal games at Dunoon and the British pipe band championship in my home town of Annan.
The massed bands at these events alway move me, and not further away...

These are strange times and the Lockdown has taken its toll on many minds. ;)

eg. I found myself having a conversation with a field mouse a couple of months ago. Admittedly it was a bit one way, although the look on the mouses face after being chased around a large box 16 times was almost like ;”you must be having a f****g laugh mate! “ lOl

Where were we? Oh yes bagpipes! :hehe:

Even worse than the accordion. Accordion players don't wear skirts.

Only bagpipes I ever liked were played by Bon Scott. 8-)

What's next? Didgeridoos? lOl
