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!
