    Pipes Of Spring concert

    The pipe band I was a founding member of back in the 1980s, now called The Kevin R Blandford Memorial Pipe Band, has for many years put on a concert called The Pipes Of Spring.

    I was surprised to see that somebody had put up a fairly rounded coverage of this year's concert:


    It's wonderful, the effect of a load of Highland pipes (tuned to Concert Bb) playing along with the pipe organ has. The organist, Jeff Rickard, along with Kevin Blandford, put out two excellent CDs of bagpipe and organ duets, Amazing Grace (all hymns) and Pipes Of Christmas.

    To break up all the high-volume stuff I come out and play a couple tunes on uilleann pipes and whistle.

    The concert raises money to support the band's occasional travels to the World Pipe Band Championships in Glasgow, we're going this August.
