Some Piping for the Weekend


The Irish Pipers Pipe Band of San Francisco are playing their medley at the Pleasanton Games three years ago. They start off with "The Strutting Hornpipe". (The announcer gives the rest of the tune names but that one didn't quite make the clip. He doesn't actually give them all that accurately to be sure: the slow air he calls "boogaloo" should be "Boolavogue". Sheesh.) This is their Grade III band - they have a Grade V band now, too. Their music is always a delight.
