Keydet Piper I'm thinking bagpipes

Special Piobaireachd Friday: Caber Feidh Gu Brath

Consider yourselves lucky, piobaireachd fans: this is your second tune this week, and it comes from an undisputed master of the genre: Roddy MacLeod. Roddy’s instructing this week at a piping school in Virginia, and in an informal recital on Tuesday evening played the Donald MacLeod tune┬áCaber Feidh Gu Brath. You can always count on him to have a great bagpipe, and the playing was fantastic.

This, ladies and gentlemen, is what bagpipes are supposed to sound like.

If you’d like to submit a tune to be featured on Piobaireachd Wednesday, please email me.

    That was awesome!!! I’ve been looking for a recording of this piobaireachd for some time. I think you might have one of the only full recordings on the net, and by a phenomenal player none the less. Thanks for sharing this.

  2. Iogantach! When an air like this makes me sing and dictates my mood the composition , the player and pipes are all inspirational. Moran Taing Donald MacCleod and Roddy and his pipes.

  3. I was taught by Norman Gillies and played with and alongside Alasdair Gillies on many an occasion, a sad loss to the piping world. As expected we all gave him a good send off on a very moving day. Please email me the music to Cabar Feidh Gu Brath or tell me where to obtain in print.
    Many Thanks,
    Yours Sincerely,
    Ian R. Henderson

    In my humble opinion the greatest Piobaireachd tune ever written and from the 20th century .Piobaireachd alive relevant modern and so musical.The powers that be such as An Commun should ensure with all the resources they have they should promote this great link between Gaelic word and piping .
