In the bag


As told to Andy Letcher Vicki studied at the Royal College of Music on the double bass and took up the pipes just after leaving music college. For her master’s degree she chose to ignore any good advice and ploughed her own path by teaching the smallpipes using podcasting, developing a teaching pedagogy she now also applies to the nyckelharpa. You’ll now find Vicki inhabiting the troll ridden forests playing her Swedish bagpipes, bagging tunes for new books.
