I'm surprised by the number and the different kinds of musicians you have in your streets!It's the sign of a cosmopolitan city.
And to know playing bagpipe is another mystery of life for me..Ü

When I joined the RAF back in 1963 I had 3 years in training school and we had a pipe band in every 'entry' - three entries a year. There is absolutely nothing like marching behind a full pipe band, you don't have to be Scottish or Irish, there is just something about the pipes. Magic.
We loved Quincy Market on out trip to Boston.

In this portrait he makes playing the bagpipes look so effortless. Was he very good?

Very handsome portrait of a bagpiper! I can almost hear the music . . .

I love bagpipes! I used to see a bagpiper walking down the street randomly from time to time near where I live. Sadly, I haven't seen him for awhile.

This guy came to "join" our band. I think he came to get that nice bagpipe bag cover and a nice new chanter so he could busk. What a jack ass.
