My bagpipes are finally on fire!
It’s always exciting to do this and so much fun.
The next tune: “March of King Laois” is a slow march
When I started with Rapalje. we always spoke about a burning bagpipes
And with this song we build one with my neighbour from “Brons Motoren”. He helped me to get the things together. And, yeah, we did it!
We can not do it here inside. That’s why we’re going to our garden
And hopefully you enjoy the burning bagpipes!

The next song often comes right after the tunes we played for you last week,
because there is no need for us to change instruments and it’s a very upbeat song.
The song “Johnnie Cope”. Is one of the first songs we did with the bagpipes. It’s about John Cope. Sir John Cope. Who lost the battle with the Jacobites in 1745.
And after that we play two jigs: “The Geese in the Bog”. And after that: “Turf Lodge”
We hope you like it as much as we do!
