This is the second video in the set. This time the march, strathspey and reel, ‘Brig. Ronald Cheape of Tiroran’, ‘Blair Drummond’ and ‘Charlie’s Welcome’.
Two things struck me when I watched this video: first how silly we look as we manfully proceed to the performance area and then promptly turn in, away from the audience (will pipe bands ever change and perform with the audience in mind?) and second, the results.
The “results section” is fascinating. Furtive brows, nervous, silent oath-making, relief, joy all rolled into one.
It was after this rain swept event that I finally ditched the (huge) glasses and went for contact lenses.
So here’s a handy tip: Don’t wear eyeglasses in the rain and think you’ll see the pipe major’s fingers – or anything else.
