Some Piping for Saturday



This is a delightful piece of border piping to brighten your Saturday. The piper is Jonathan Swayne playing his own border pipes in low G. If you were wondering, my old set of Naill border pipes don't sound anything like this. Jon built his to sound very much in the French style and low G is quite uncommon. But what a nice warm sound they give. Rather like uillean pipes, I think. (And isn't that Julian Goodacre, a very fine maker of English pipes, starting off the dancing?)
