Review: Book of Irish Music for the D pipes by Dave Rowlands


For those of you leading busy lives who might not have the time or inclination to read a thousand words of text without checking your email or social networking feed here is the “executive summary” in 140 characters: “This is a good book for £12 with good tunes in it. If you have an interest in playing Irish music on the border bagpipes, you should buy it.” Having thus satisfied the Twitterati and their ilk, we can afford to adopt a slightly more discursive style and go into a bit more detail.

We are settling into our new website, including making available articles from our thirty year history. If you spot something inaccurate, garbled or missing, or if you want to volunteer to help us improve our site, please mail info@bagpipesociety.
