Probably not considered traditional, but I do drumming with a pipe band. Although, when you think about it, the drum is the most ancient of all instruments.

I was taking piping lessons when I was much younger. Actually, I was trading lessons with a piper friend of mine. When I went into the Army, my pracitce chanter got lost in the shuffle. I never got another one. sad.gif

Is it legal to change the status of your played instrument to "Traditional" if you've heard someone playing it on HR? smile.gif

I just heard a tremendous sax solo from a Fenian's song.....so sax is now Celtic?

I'd say so...

There was actually a little while when Jazz/Big Bands were getting popular in Ireland.
Because people were making saxophone or trombone their instruments (instead of fiddle or pipes) these "jazz" instruments began to find their way into the ceili bands of the time. Likewise...jazz inflection was starting to creep it's way in too and the local dance music became a weird swing Jazz/Irish hybrid

Could you imagine doing the Walls of Limerick or the Haymaker's jig to Benny Goodman swing??

Cheers,

I play the bagpipesjavascript:emoticon('::musicnote'). I have been playing for about 25 years. I guess that dates me somewhat. By the way how can I get a copy of that kid with the bagpipes blowing up the bike tire. That is great!!!

dundee..
I am using this handle, because I did something stupid to the Arianrhod one..
So this will be me for a bit ...

I did just start in Oct.. but with the winter here, missed quite a few weeks..
Very lucky to have a teacher about twenty minutes away smile.gif

Working on the Arkansa Travler atm.. good tune..
but I look foreward to playing other types of music..

I don't know about haveing the music under control ...
as for being hammered.... bash.gif
Not as much since college angel_not.gif

In Service to the Dream,
Paula

My teacher and I both looked for HD's.. she found me one in nearby Ohio..
This lady was selling a Lost Valley.. with everything.. its a 16/16 ..
I have to get a pic posted.. Linda Foley is a caver, and her husband is a luther..
so she did the sound holes.. its pretty unique..
