February 2021 Tune of the Month: The Girl of the House

I have stumbled upon yet another Irish jig that transposes quite well to the highland pipes with just a few slight modifications. This fact means you could play it along with an Irish session group if you were playing smallpipes in D (mixolydian), the little tiny chanter. It’s a fun little two parted jig!

January 2021 Tune of the Month: Wedding in the Woods

I haven’t done a tune of the month in over a year or so as I felt toward the end that I was too often grasping for something to share. But, I watched the online concert linked below and was struck by this awesome tune written by Fin Moore: The Wedding in the Woods.

Being unable to sleep early this morning I got up and figured it out, I hope correctly! I’ve got no sheet music for you as it’s under copyright but I do have a recording of it for you on highland pipes: Glencoe drones, Colin Kyo chanter, Husk chanter reed, Overtone drone reeds (Ackland). Just absorb the smoothness of those drones…

You could look at my fingers in the video I posted to BookFace if the audio isn’t enough for you to figure the tune out. Also, the microphone is directly behind me because my bed is currently acting as camera and sheet music holder as I sight read.
