Instrument Maker or Musician? In conversation with Olle Geris


Images to follow On the Facebook page of l’Atelier d’un Souffle à l’autre, run by Remy Dubois and Olle Geris, you can regularly see detailed photos with the title: “Ce matin à l’atelier …” “This morning in the workshop…” Through these photographs, you can more or less follow the painstakingly precise way in which bagpipes are made. Intriguing, all that fine turning, drilling and cutting work by skilled instrument makers who are clearly working with heart and soul, to please musicians with their exquisite wind instruments.

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.
