Annual Collogue Report

The 2012 Annual Collogue of the LBPS proved to be as exciting a day as it had promised.

The morning's talks by Will Lamb, Mike Katz and David Taylor were stimulating and entertaining; a full report will be included in the December issue of Common Stock. The afternoon's entertainment consisted of performances on pipes and fiddle by a remarkable line-up of players assembled by Hamish Moore. Recordings and videos are now being edited  [currently around 15GB of files!]

Here for starters is a William Dixon tune given a 21st century make-over by Callum Armstrong and Pete Stewart.

Watch this space for more.. .'My Love Comes Passing By Me' from the William Dixon MS 1733. Callum plays a Scottish smallpipe made by Julian Goodacre, and demonstrates that the notion that a Scottish smallpipe has only one octave is not true. [thanks to Julian Goodacre for the video]
