Llano Estacado and District Pipe Band (LEAD Pb!!!)

Llano Estacado (yawn-oh estacadoh) means “staked plains”. We live in Lubbock, TX which is part of the South Plains.

Lead means “in the front”. We aim to be the best competition quartet (and band once we get some drummers).

Lead is a heavy metal. Pb means pipe band. Pb is the chemical element symbol for lead. We’re dorky scientists, for the most part.

We use Colin Kyo chanters and Husk chanter reeds.

Recordings from band practice.

2015 – 08 – 16 (Bryan – Colin Kyo bagpipes, Nick – Naill bagpipes, Patrick – Gellaitry bagpipes)

51st HIghland Division, Flett from Flotta, and Lord Lovat’s Lament – still too many low G strikes to low A in the Lovat ending; too early off the high A in the ending of Flett – resorting back to wrong way of playing – remember to cut the E short

Medley #1 – strathspey idiosyncrasies need polishing; jig and reel playing need to be more free flowing

Medley #2 – still learning this one; don’t forget to hold that low A at the beginning of each phrase in the second part of Cork Hill; rushing in 4th part of High Road to Linton

Glasgow Police Pipers & Troy’s Wedding – 4th part of Troys needs work

Angus MacKinnon & Frank Thompson – BBQ set sounding good; hold first F in 2nd part of Angus
