Bag Pipes

Piping at Peggy's Cove, Nova Scotia
My second trip to Peggy's Cove this summer was made even better by the fact that they had this woman playing bag pipes! I had hoped she'd play "Scotland the Brave" (my favourite song on the pipes), but while I was there, she didn't. I never thought that maybe she'd take requests, though! Of the songs I heard her play, I only recognized one - Amazing Grace. That's another song I love to hear on bag pipes.

hey shelley,
this answers the question!
when some young guy would tell me all about some amazing young girl they met ... the standard response I gave them because i am from a scottish / irish heritage was "yeah, well can she play the pipes?"
well apparently, yes she can.
