Subject: RE: BS: Against my better judgement....
a friend and I played duelling banjos (well at least the start of it) on uilleann pipes at a Christmas party.... the crowd loved it, bad as it was......

Uilleann pipes are difficult to play, it takes a lot of practice to make them sound more tuneful than a duck being strangled......

Having said that...... they have a lovely tone. Highland small pipes have a nice tone too, and are played similar to the uilleanns. I'm hoping to pick up a set of highland pipes when I go home later this year..... that'll really give the band something to complain about!!
