Roderick Cannon - a personal reflection


A personal reflection by Matt Seattle Somewhere, either before or just after I took up the pipes (1991), I bought a couple of back issues of The Piping Times and homed in on the Tune of the Month articles by a certain R D Cannon. The article – and the tune – which took my fancy was Portpatrick or The Churlish Husband and, as I recall, the author commented that he was surprised no-one had ever made it into a 4-part tune or maybe something even longer.

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.
