ollaimh are the Irish pipes suitable for airs? (30) RE: are the Irish pipes suitable for airs? 27 Dec 12


i think airs sound beautiful on the irish pipes. when i was younger we used to go see tomas standeven (a former all ireland champion) play, he spent time learning cape breton fiddling and occasionally played old scottish airs on his pipes and they were magica moments. there are few more sad and bequtiful tunes than cape breton airs. they play them in scotura tuning to imitate the drones, so they were probably borrowed from the pipe world in the first place.

so i say yes
