In the Bag: Roly Scales


Roly was born in February 1954 and is still living. British/French dual national. A serial dabbler in all sorts of stuff, including bagpipes. Main instrument: Anglo concertina. Currently reading “A Place of Greater Safety” by Hilary Mantel and “Les Ch’tis Hommes Libres” (“The Wee Free Men”, in French) by Terry Pratchett. Ambition: to place a chameleon on a tartan rug and see if it dies of over-exertion. What bagpipes do you play?

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.
