Thread Name: Three Hole Pipes
Subject: RE: Three Hole Pipes
The mention of Jim Jones taborer's pipes reminded me of two tragic losses. My first JJ pipe, which had been a birthday present, was stolen while I was at Letterkenny FF in 1977.

I danced with Southport Swords for a time. My second JJ pipe was stolen whilst I was at a Day of Dance in Liverpool.

To all taborers - look after your pipe(s) as if you have eyes in your arse.

I wouldn't mind, but Jim had suggested that I make a little case for the pipe, and hang it round my neck when not playing, and to make a "wrist-loop" for the tabor.

Nah, I thought - no folkie would rip another folkie off.

jesus bless my innocence.

Still, I'm content with my Generation, shrill tho it might be, and the Susato is damn good value for money.
