I don’t know if it’s the case with all musicians but I can tell you that when it’s bagpipes you play a person gets to meet a lot of good and interesting people. Last August I attended the Lorient Festival in Brittainy. Maybe I’ll have a chance to pass along some of what I learned there – and that year – about Breton music (and how not to lose your passport in France). Anyway, I met loads of people including the famed Denis brothers, Loic and Armel and fellow Breton piper, Patricia Riou. It was through Pat that I connected with Yoann Le Goff, also a Breton piper (of course). Yoann lives in Connecticut right now making his way in the businesses of technology and piping. It’s thanks to his good work and ability that this site was developed. A huge sincere thanks to Yoann.
So, here I’m hoping to pass along some of the stuff I’ve learned over the years about music, bagpipes – I don’t mean to suggest the two are unrelated – and anything else I think is of any value to anyone. At the very least I’ll have an excuse to practice my keyboarding.
Btw, have a look at Yoann’s international directory of musicans – and sign up!
