Thistle House Live is great RSCDS music (Royal Scottish Country Dance Society) with bagpiping ... http://www.cdbaby.com/cd/thistlehouse ... ( and which I added here as reference - http://worlduniversity.wikia.com/wiki/Scottish_Country_Dancing ). Might you know them to be able to get the piping music, as well as the musical notation for all instruments? And have you seen Patrick McLaurin's database of piping tunes, as well as the other, similar databases of tunes (McGillivray +) that I've also added here - http://worlduniversity.wikia.com/wiki/Bagpipe_Tutorials#Bagpipe_Sheet_Music_for_Printing ?
If you were to suggest a reel and strathspey, for RSCDS band and bagpipe, to begin to make music together with, what would they be? (I might have to find a set of quieter lowland bagpipes, and which has similar fingering as in piping).
In Scottish Gaelic (in the Hebrides)
("Caledonian MacBrayne's ferry MV Hebrides makes its way across the Minch for the last time. November 1985. Soon to be replaced by the Hebridean Isles built at Selby Yorkshire. Language - Gaelic. Featuring song about MV Hebrides and crew by Costello").

Hi J and M,
As I wrote in a recent email to Kevin Carr, a good, many-bagpipes' bagpiper, and Brian Rice, a skillful drummer, (and Oberlin conservatory graduate), whom I heard at Stanford recently:
"I particularly like to explore getting to 'space' (but am a little inexperienced at this), while you seem to find your ways there ... http://www.youtube.com/
watch?v=t5bDL32IbeY&list= PL322C6E87CA4DB67B :) "
And their Grateful Dead-inspired "Wake the Dead" youtube and group have a fair amount of Irish - Celtic - Gaelic - Scottish influences (Kevin first learned piping on the Great Scottish Highland Bagpipe).
Have you heard "Wake the Dead"?
Let's seek out more folk 'classics' - i.e. very beautiful and enjoyably melodic tunes - for Sunday, to make music with and learn from, if we're on. :)
Heard Bagpiper Kevin Carr and Drummer Brian Rice play together at Stanford the other evening:
"The Other Bagpipes: Exotic and Lesser-Known Piping Traditions of the World ...Kevin Carr has performed music of traditional cultures for more than thirty years."
Kevin Carr ...
Kevin and Brian,
Thanks for your great music yesterday evening at Stanford.
Here are two, beginning, related, wiki, musical subjects at World University and School, which is like Wikipedia with MIT OCW, and with plans for an all-instrument / all-language, online, wiki music school :
Musical Jamming -
(planned for Google + group video Hangouts, and similar)
and to which I'll look to add some of your YouTube videos :)
I'm looking forward to the time, too, when it's easy to hop into a Google + group video hangout and jam ...
Let's make music sometime together - I particularly like to explore getting to space (but am a little inexperienced at this), while you seem to find your ways there ... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t5bDL32IbeY&list=PL322C6E87CA4DB67B :)
And thanks for great music last night.
More later :)
