Some Piping for Saturday. . . .


This is Chris Ormiston playing the Northumbrian Small Pipes at one of the recent the North Hero Gatherings. It's a longish recording -- maybe ten minutes -- with lots of different pieces and a virtuoso piper.

I'm off with the Highland Pipes shortly to play for a wedding. (The border pipe playing isn't ready for prime time yet.) Yesterday we had our first rain since last April and today is a lovely, fresh day with the air all washed clean and a bit of a chill. Great weather for the pipes. My fingers are more limber when it's a touch warmer but you can't have everything. Slow the fast things down a little and all will be well.
