Tune Of The Month - P/M George Cruikshank
April 04, 2009

I have chosen the bagpipe tune Pipe Major George Cruikshank for this mailing.

This jig is mainly for the more advanced piper. This is jig that I like and have always enjoyed playing.

I would like to congratulate my former band, the Auckland and District Pipe Band for winning the 2009 New Zealand Pipe Band Championships. You can listen to an MP3 of there playing at the following link - Auckland and Districts Pipe Band Medley MP3

The following link has some audio clips from some of the other competing bands Other Competitors MP3's

Please feel free to contact me for any piping related question that you may have.

Take care and happy piping.
Bill Robertson

Pipeline BBC, Radio Scotland:

Radio Scotland have a weekly broadcast called Pipeline. There website has the following statement, "The definitive pipe music program, featuring news and recordings from the piping world". CLICK HERE to go to the Pipeline web site.

The program changes each week at the weekend and lasts just under the hour. Normally it contains quite a lot of mainly good solo piping (sometimes other that Highland), some bands, news, and featured extracts from top contests both solo and band shortly after the events. Some pipers have rather too high a pitch and as a result a thin sound, and odd lapses in rhythm etc., which we all have some more than others. Still, we can all learn from perceptive listening.
