Or actually the quote of yesterday, since that’s when it was posted. A beginning piper posted a thread in the Piobaireachd topic of the Bob Dunsire forums in which she asked “What is piobaireachd?”
The best response is below. I love it.
And how true. When I learned my first piobaireachd (Clan Campbell’s Gathering) I actually felt like I could call myself a piper. It’s like a rite of passage, and it does help pipers become better players. Perfect response, Roger!
