    Of course! And there is no finer feeling in the world than standing in the circle with a well-tuned band playing well!

    It seems that whenever I perform, someone wants to tell me a bagpipe joke. Out of self-defense Iíve acquired a large number of jokes for the purpose of beating them to the punchline.

    As to banjo, I donít play, but appreciate the instrument. Itís considerably more versatile than most folks imagine. A gentleman by the name of John Bullard has even released an album of classical music based on instruments typically associated with Bluegrass. Itís called ďBach on the BanjoĒ and itís amazing. Also Bela Fleck is known for jazz banjo, a mind expanding experience if ever there was one!

    Oh my gosh yes! Playing in a circle of Grade One pipers hammering out The Sheepwife with all those tachums clicking with precision is my best piping memory ever.

    Then there's Jerry O Sullivan playing Bach on the pipes! It's amazing.

    This may be getting too far off-topic, but there's a group called Sinfonity that does classical symphony music on electric guitars and basses.

    I believe myself to be always operating within reasonable boundaries of sanity.

    @OC Richard, what a great link. Sounds like it was meant to be done that way. And might actually have been during Bach's life.
    Also is not something that I ever considered before.

    Thanks for posting.
