Subject: RE: Folk & Roots event at Hessle Town Hall-8 Sept
Love most bagpipes whether they come in ones or twos. We've had pipers of all types in Hull over the last 40 years or so. I used to go to a session at the Hase about 10 years ago. Martin Bull and Sue were there, John O'Boyle and various others. Sue and John mostly played Sc lowland pipes. What sort do these youngsters play? I'd love to hear a quartet of Lowland, highland, Northumbrian and ullian, although the highland player would have to stand outside and play to give the others a chance.
Apart from Ged and the 2 mentioned and the youngsters there's Dickie. In the past there was Julie Rawe on ullian and Nick Scott made the occasional visit to play with Chris and Denny. I don't remember any Northumbrian pipers in the area, but we often had gigs from Kathryn Tickell, Colin Ross, Alistair Anderson and even Johnny Handle had a go.
