The Golden Birch

I posted up in FaceBook the other day that I've been youtubing since 2006. A little over 11 years and I shared the first video I ever made. Since then I've been asked for the dots and I can't actually find them here on Blogger, so I'm making brand new entry with the old video and some newly created dots. I may well go through the old entries and refresh them up!

Gånglåt i Sorg for bagpipes

Truly the saddest tune in the world! Played here on border pipes in G and oktavharpa (Cello pitched nyckelharpa)

Vals efter Gustaf Elfström

It's been a while! I keep meaning to keep posting more bagpipe videos, but the nyckelharpa keeps getting in the way! But I am running a course next spring, so it's time to start video blogging in earnest! You can find all the details on my website. In a nutshell though:

Swedish Bagpipe Tunes at Halsway Manor
I play bagpipes in these different keys, so these different keys are welcome!
  • säckpipa in A/E
  • säckpipa in D/G
  • Scottish smallpipes in D or A
  • English Border pipes in G
So here is a nice simple little Swedish tune played on all three pipes (one after the other) and a little advert for the weekend at Halsway! I've included the tune in all three keys.
Enjoy and hope to see you at Halsway in March!
