Those of us who skipped pre-Super-Bowl parties this past Sunday, Febr. 3 at 3:00 pm enjoyed another tuneful and informative GNIPC General Meeting. After a brief update on club business, we played tunes including “Eagle’s Whistle,” “Drops of Brandy,” “The Leitrim Quickstep,” and “Saddle the Pony.”
The second half was mostly taken up by learning “Garret Barry’s Mazurka” (see the Tunebook page for sheet music), and a discussion of the vagaries of keeping chanter reeds playing. Judging from how many of us stayed well past 5:00 pm, a good time was had by all.
Hope to see you next time!
