Video: “Loch Lomond” at David’s

Slowly darkness falls over my garden and the torches are lit.

From my balcony I watch until I can play.

“Loch Lomond” is a well-known Scottish traditional. We play it also, with our torches and the bagpipes

After the song we play “Farewell to the Creeks”. It’s standing in “The Scottish Guards”. It’s also a traditional Scottish tune.

We can not do it here inside. So we’re going back to the garden

Have fun watching this video! “Loch Lomond” at David’s

So, enjoy!, David

Video: “Johnnie Cope – The Geese in the Bog – Turf Lodge” at David’s

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!

Yours, David
