Gotta' agree about the whistle Jacqui.....also the friggin' bagpipes. It could have been worse though......I mean if I was there in person, that would definitely be worse! AG is a nice tune but it must be to the bagpipes what "Lady of Spain" is to the accordion.   How come pipers never play "My Ding-a-Ling" or "Rave On?"

Then there's the words which say:

Amazing Grace, how sweet the sound,
That saved a wretch like me....


Sweet sound? Bagpipes? Sweet humpin' Jesus, pipes sound like someone is strangling 50 African Gray Parrots at the same time! They need to be played outdoors....atop a cliff face.......Facing the ocean........in Greenland........

Supper is ready but this has put me off my feed...................

Don't knock the pipes man! Sure they are limited in range, but they are not about the music as much as the feeling. The sound of the highland pipes make me home sick for Scotland. (Past life experience)

The penny whistle sucked. He was damn good on it but they were both out of place. I always have a problem with musicians who play as if it was all about them instead of the music.

Had a friend who fished with his bagpipes. He'd jump in and tootle away underwater for about 30 seconds and 25 or 30 dead fish would float to the surface. HE'd been using dynamite but this worked better except that the locals who never complained before, started bitching about the gawdawful screeching......

And it was a moving performance to be truthful. I moved my bowels twice immediately after I watched it. Plus there are some piping groups trying newer music. Some works and some doesn't. I heard the Scottish Pipe version of the Rolling Stone's "Hey! You! Get Off of My Cloud," which is titled, Hey! Macleod! Get Off of My Ewe."

Fucking A plus what?

Downhill Beer? Downhill?

Can you imagine a column of pipers going downhill? The lead guy trips and they all tumble down to the bottom with the pipes screeching tunelessly (their natural condition) while the drummers are all smiles since this is as close to on tempo they have ever heard a pipes group since forever............

Amazing venue- somewhere in the Netherlands (hence the orange favours & ties?).
Herself assisted at a funeral in the local church a couple of years ago. The deceased was apparently a local record producer. The MC invited people up into the choir stalls to sing "Amazing Grace" a capella -lots of gospel singers, mostly Afro-Caribbean, some of whom were probably well-known in the business- she said she'd never heard anything so awesome.

I was in a pipe band (scouts) and as we grew up the lads became the leaders and we moved on, one of the younger pipers grew into the pipe majors job and he used to play "little old wine drinker me" and others in the pub in the evening, quite amazing.

The Royal Scots Dragoon Guards did it, and this one is a close second. I agree about the whistle player--send him to Coventry (or something like that).

Spaw's unoriginal and unamusing criticisms notwithstanding, there really is a lot to dislike about this performance. For one thing that silly prat Andre Rieu, a civilian, saluted the Pipe Major bareheaded. And we seem to agree about the whistle player. And yet ... The band was really good, and probably raised a lump in the throats of quite a few people who might not admit it. Kendall was right. It was a moving performance -doesn't mean I'm going to rush out and buy tickets to the next Andre Rieu concert.

Are they still using bagpipes at Guantanamo? There was some holdup at first as they didn't have any U.S.Marines trained in them. Then they realized it didn't matter and wasn't really worth the money anyway.   They figured one screeching squawk was as good as another..................

Thanks for the link, Kendall. I like the pipes, but I agree with Spaw that they don't belong indoors. But perhaps an arena as big as that doesn't actually count as indoors.

I dislike "Amazing Grace," with its drab tune and truckling words. I've told my husband that if it's played at my funeral, I will come back and haunt him.

I love "Amazing Grace". Simple and good and true - there you go.
But I prefer a lone piper to a production number.
Of course, I relate to and enjoy Spaw's humor.So what do I know.

That song is so over done I could live forever and not hear it again. There is just something about the highland pipes that stir my soul.
They played Scotland the Brave well, I thought.

You can get a half rack with sauce for about 8 bucks around here Bugsy so you can have room for a small accordion casserole on the side. One place serves them in a crisp Bodhran topped with ground concertina crumbles.......Top off the evening with a nice recorder flambe..........Boner Peeteep!

Just getting 4 or 5 bagpipe teams up there working in unison was a feat in itself. The whistle was a side show and was actually overkill. Would it have sounded better without the whistle? I dunno, depends on the sound guy(s).
