    Gaelic & tweed & castles & piobaireachd

    I just stumbled upon this video, it's fantastic on several levels.

    For one, the piping is wonderful.

    And the songs are introduced in Gaelic, as is fitting for piobaireachd. (At least one of those pipers is a native Gaelic speaker.)

    The venue is gorgeous.

    And it's interesting to see what the top pipers were wearing in 1991, for us piping enthusiasts.

    The negative is that you're just getting disjointed snippets of the tunes, and losing their narrative sweep.
