I am assuming it is for a piping position of some sort. What is the event?

Sorry I didn't see this sooner. Yes, it's very impressive. For future use (may the opportunities be many), I'd suggest, where it mentions publications, adding "available on request", and then keeping a few promo packets of your article file at the ready. (If you are not doing that already, of course) You write awfully well, and I should say it also gives you an edge that many others don't have, to be a bit of a scholar and able to field the congenial question from the audience.

Sorry I'm late on this one, Emmet. It looks really good! Very thorough. Hope it does the trick for you.

Have a great day!

Funny you should say that; my set pieces were darned near perfect, my tuning was dead on, and I was in full parade dress (tropical, of course); spit and polish. The only question they asked was about the history of the bagpipe. Yes; on occasion, someone actually does want to know something besides "what's up yours?".

Fortunately I could, off the cuff, expound on the development of bagpipes from ancient Thebes and Greece to the Roman tibia utricularis, it's spread across Europe with the Legions, it's superceding the harp as a weapon of war, to it's adoption by the Highland regiments of the British Army and it spread across the globe when Victorian Britannia ruled the waves, to it's popularity among not only Scottish, Irish, Canadian and Australian, but Jordanian, Palestinian, Egyptian, Indian, and Pakistani military bands as well. I could've droned on about it's use in battle; McKay of the Cameronians outside the square at Waterloo, George Finlater of the Gordons at the heights of Dargai, Jimmy Richardson of the Canadian Scottish at the Somme, up to it's current use in Iraq, and some of the more publicized photos of Scott Taylor of the Black Watch...sadly, after what to my mind was a near perfect performance, it was the only question they asked. The piano player ahead of me answered a barrage of them.

Perhaps I should've just said that it's a well-known fact that the Irish invented the bagpipes and gave them to the Scots...who never discovered the practical joke.

Thanks for the feedback everyone.
