So I guess we are on time for the ceilli, Gypsy. Cool beans!

I'm intrigued, curious, and wondering about the piper in that song.

Is he playing a Musette de cour or is it a Biniou?

there is not the drone of the Scots pipes, and I don't think that it could be the Germanic version of the pipes, either, though I've never heard the doodlewhack or whatevre.

Qui est-il?

It is always described as a cornemuse--which is really just the french word for bagpipe. He is Breton, so probably some sort of biniou. Every country in Europe except Norway had a bagpipe at one time. They lost popularity when the accordion was invented. The Swedish pipe is called the sacpipa, the hungarian is the duda, the romanian is the cimpoii, the Italian is zampona, the Bulgarian gaida, the Spanish gaita. In the British isles there are a lot of pipes besides the Scottish warpipes. There are the Northumbrian small pipes, there is the uillean pipes of Ireland, etc.

Gypsy: Sad story... is there a moral?

Sigbjørn Bernhoft Osa på Hardingfele



He is playing in the Concert Style of Ole Bull (1810-1880). Ole was called "The Paganini of the North" and had a tour thru the California Gold Fields (1850-51). Later, Ole founded a Community of like-minded Norwegians in Pennsylvania, called OLEANA.

A nearby neighbor of the past three years here in the mountains of Appalachia was a bagpipe maker and player. I often heard him playing his pipes. When my friend Karen visited me two years ago I took her down to meet him. She plays the Bulgarian gaida and is one of the few women gaida players in the world. We had a wonderful afternoon with him swapping stories. About a month ago, he got up during the night and went out to the woods behind his house and shot himself in the head.

The Norwegians don't need a bagpipe--who needs that when you have the hardingfele and dances like Telespringar and Valdres springar Which besides the Mezoseg of Hungary are my favorite dances in the world to do.

Well Gypsy those are some great songs there. I guess I'm covered since one set of grandparents are Scottish, but what are the Finnish pipes?


"Norwegians don't need a bagpipe" - Michele is gonna be happy to hear that.

We didn't have alot a dough in those days to go out eating, but we would spend money there.

Wow it didn't close until 1997.

Svenskin in a danskin it's complicated doing some things.
Now trouble's over, I am in deep green clover
Worry back in its cage where the bud bird sings

Sackbutts and tympans, kazoos and tin cans
A bagpipe from Sergipe and a hornpipe from a coasting vessel
Joined by a band of howler monkeys go together like chopsticks and learning the piano
Like Bukowski and Budweiser

Here's a fine set of Brazilian pipes. One's the tamarin, the other's the marmoset. You have to play these with a great deal of passion, as in most Brazilian musical expressions. They almost sound alive, sometimes. Have you ever heard a mambo played on the tamarin with concerti?

Boby Di Lan, the piper from Sergipe, is a fan of the tamarin. The marmoset, he says, is too heavy for marching and it's not comfortable without eating a large meal, so it's tough getting them in exactly the right mood for playing. So the tamarin's by far the more popular than ORGAN GRINDER'S MONKEY!*

thanks Marlow (my mom, not a big music listener had a Sebelius CD). I have a little container of dirt from the family farm there in Jalasjärvi, just down the road apiece (24 km) from Kurikka where Jakob and Hedvig lived before moving to Ironwood MI. Little known facts, but true nonetheless.

aahm so lonesome I could cry

But save a few for Ricky too

Love that hardangar--makin' me downright horney to dance

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FYjXqXz4-r8

And the closest that Sweden gets to the springar is the slangpolska; here played by the supergroup Väsen.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VW3Gv03rS_8

and that is a nyckleharpe which is the resonant fiddle of Sweden and the Swedish national instrument. The Norwegian national instrument is the hardangar fiddle.

and the nyckleharpe is similar to the hurdy-gurdy which is also a keyed-fiddle but uses a wheel rather than a bow.

PALE BLUE ALERT! (vaguely climbing-referenced remarks)

"If the fight gets hot, the songs get hotter. If the fight gets tough, the songs get toughter."

"It don't pay to organize unless you are organized."

"There's several ways of saying what's on your mind. And in states and counties where it aint't too healthy to talk too loud, speak your mind, or even vote like you want to, folks have found other ways of getting the word around. One of the mainest ways is by singing....No matter who makkes it up, no matter who sings it and who don't, if it talks the lingo of the people, it's a cinch to catch on, and will be sung here and yonder for a long time after you've cashed inyour chips."

"When the going gets weird, the weird get going."

"The bagpipe music got me jonesing for a single malt so I got some."

Which of the quotes above is not from WBraun? (Merry's quote)

Which one is bogus? (WBraun's)

Which one is not the quote you were seeking? (all the above)

Which one is Weird Al's? (who?)

Which is Bob Dylan's favorite? (not a clue)

Case in point, when I Muvrini first started singing and writing songs (around 1979-80) the French government tried to put a stop to them saying they were subversive and seeking revolution merely because they were singing in Corsican not French. They used to be met by the gendarmes and the mayor of the town before they could set up their stages. The people got wind of it and they would all congregate somewhere else and thus the French government's ban on their performances actually increased I Muvrini's popularity. Now, they are a supergroup, and one of the most popular bands in Europe They play stadiums where thousands of people come to see them.

And one of my favorite songs from their new album for which I did the photography.
