  1. The few times I have heard bagpipes, I have gotten the chills. Such a sound, hard to even describe.


  2. Love the bagpipes. 😊


  3. This is fabulous!
    Also, one of my favorite bagpipe performances is the total overboard overkill beyond all the beyond of Andre Rieu’s all out show in Scotland some years back:

      Thank you, Na’ama, glad you enjoyed.
      Mr Rieu’s performances often include mass bagpipes to great effect, as in your link, which was in fact in the Netherlands.
      I am always amazed when someone says they don’t like bagpipes, it’s like saying they don’t like the saxophone or violin, it just makes no sense to me.
      For a more understated approach than Mr Rieu’s you might enjoy this:

      • Oh! I thought it was in Scotland! Maybe there was another one – as you say – in a show in Scotland and I mixed the videos. In any event, yeah, he’s a master of schmoozing and making merry with the crowd.
        And — yes, I LOVE this clip! Had seen it before and was delighted to see it again. 🙂
