    March Piccture Challenge - calling all musicians!

    I want to see a picture of you in your kilt, MAKING MUSIC.

    Now, we can take this rather liberally. So if you happen to be a DJ, and have a shot of yourself doin' your thing in a kilt, that qualifies. If you happen to not have a lick of sense, no rhythm or pitch, but have a picture of yourself at the karaoke machine after almost enough beer, well????

    And of course, if there's a picture of you as the Baritone soloist at the Metropolitan Opera, and you're kilted up.... Pipers? Here's YOUR thread! Whistle players, Drummers---- Violist in your string quartet? What are you waiting for?

    Ready, set.... GO!

    Re: March Piccture Challenge - calling all musicians!

    I'll kick it off with two...

    Here's one, taken a couple of years ago at a Nor Cal Rabble kilt night at the Devils Canyon Brewery, when my band played.



    .....and the same band in it's "Celtic" configuration at a Nor Cal Burns Night a few years ago...I'm playing low whistle.



    Hey, mods...I typo'd again! Arrrrgh. Can someone help with the thread title?

    This is me at the reception for my grandson's christening. I had the tune commissioned for him.

    Since my son doesn't post here too often I'll offer this photo of him piping with Uncle Hamish and the Hooligans.

    I'll post this abomination again, and try for a new one before the month is over...




    I still maintain that flyrod's pic up there is one of the coolest piping shot's I've seen.

    One of my favorites. A "duet" with my youngest grandson. He was two at the time, currently eleven.

    Thanks Ryan! It's a favorite of mine. I had such a blast that night at the pub, piping with friends, and I think it comes across in the pic. I'm going to make a print for my "I love me" wall...
