Spotlight on ... Gesine Bänfer and Ian Harrison


Spotlight on … Gesine Bänfer and Ian Harrison The duo of Gesine Bänfer and Ian Harrison goes back a long way and it has been a winding road full of highs and lows, or as the medieval French would have said, ’Les haulz et les bas‘. Here they talk about their music and their experiences. Though our musical biographies are very different, both of us became fascinated by ’early’ and ’traditional’ music in our teens.

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.
