A Piper’s Appointment with FatE


It was the stories and folklore associated with our instrument that first got me interested in playing the bagpipes. I’d come across this chap called Richard York playing various instruments at a Tudor day at Shibden Hall and had become entranced by the tales he told between the tunes as much as the music itself. The performance planted a seed in my mind and within a couple of years I was piping myself and Richard became a very good and supportive friend.
