During our practice today, we had a number of people walking by telling us how they lived on the next street (or two) over, and they were thrilled that they could hear us. One guy was walking his dog, but on the way to go get his girlfriend as she loves the Pipes.
We also had a tune request. The moment we switched from warm up (evcryone on their own) to group formation, we were asked by a neighbour across the street to play Mairi’s Wedding. Ironically, that was the first tune of the first set we were going to play.
While everyone but one was present (and he was accounted for), there is always room in the group for more pipers and drummers to join us. In the future, we also hope to have some affiliated Highland Dancers.
