Obituary - Tamar Stephens

We are so sorry and very saddened to learn about the passing of Tamar Stephens. She was such a great pupil in learning and taking on mostly the finer points with me in Piping.

She was a good Piper in her own right, but was always keen to advance that bit further. She was also a very good friend, and will be missed by myself, my wife Elizabeth, and I am sure by many in the piping World who have known Tamar in many ways.

Tamar's pupils will be saddened too and appreciative of all the piping knowledge she passed on to them.

Our heartfelt sympathies go to Tamar’s family. She will be sorely missed by all.

That is all for this month.

Best Regards.

Bill Robertson.

Note please:
If needing help with reed setting, manipulation etc., and much more that pipers need to know on maintenance, tuning etc., (band and solo) consider the highly reviewed The Complete Pipers’ Handbook and/or allied smaller book and DVD at
