Gaelic music, and particularly that from Scotland grabs me.
In September last year Kay and I toured Scotland by rented car, driving where ever we wanted depending on the weather, having a fabulous time, seeking out our ancestral roots, history, whisky and haggis!
Edinburgh we loved. We wandered the city centre, spent hours at the Castle, walked the Royal Mile enjoying the many street performers, down to the Palace of Holyroodhouse, the Queen's official residence in Scotland. During one of our walks along the Royal Mile we browsed a souvenir store. my ears became alert- I loved the music coming over the shop's sound system, so asked the shop manager about it. I purchased a gem of a recording thinking it was crazy music for the Red Hot Chili Peppers to be playing.
Playing it later on our rental car's CD player, we had quite a discussion how such a great pop band would play bagpipe music. But we loved it. A few days later it finally clicked- not the Red Hot Chili Peppers - the CD was by The Red Hot Chili Pipers - a totally different but well known Scottish band bringing bagpipes to the pop scene. And in such a great way!
Listen to how keyboard, electric guitar and bagpipes go so well together, counterpointing and leading and complementing each with each other. That guitar bridge is up there with the greats.
There are several live recordings of this on YouTube indicating how well this is loved.
Kay has just heard me playing this and came in and said "Stop torturing me with that music.Take me back to Scotland, Jim!"
Torture and tears this CD has given her. Upon leaving Inverness we drove down to Birmingham to stay with friends. This CD was playing and as we were approaching the Scotland/ England border, which is just a signpost, Flower of Scotland began to play. Kay burst into tears.
Yes it was a such a wonderful time together, and we both loved every minute, gales and rain and visiting Tallisker Distillery and never touching a drop...too early in the morning, and not wanting any problems driving a rental... so I wasn't allowed!
Oh and hey, can nae have Scots music without this about bashing the English!
