LBPS Winter Teaching Sessions on Zoom: Tuesday, 21st February 2023


Following on from David Faulkner’s excellent session last month, Jeremy Kingsbury will be hosting the second session. Jeremy will be known to most of you from his popular bi-weekly (mostly) podcast. In these, he explores the likely repertoire of 18th- and early 19th-century pipers of the British Isles. He also has two albums to his credit: Oyster Wives Rant and Pay the Pipemaker.

Jeremy’s LBPS session will be held at 19:30 (GMT) on Tuesday, 21st February. For his session, and with the Skeely Piper category for this year’s annual competition in mind, Jeremy is hoping to lead us through five tunes collected or transcribed by women. Three of those tunes (Miss Mary—Miss Watson’s Favorite, and Eliza Ross’s Unnamed Jig) use the low F note achievable on some smallpipe chanters by adjusting the taping of the tone holes on the side of the chanter. Jeremy has a video explaining how to do that here:
Jeremy will also go over Tibby Fowler of the Glen and a possible alternate setting of Thomas Rymer and Queen of Elfland from Anna Gordon (Mrs. Brown of Falkland).
This looks set to be another memorable session. You will not want to miss this. Join us for what promises to be another memorable session. The link for the session will be sent out a few days before the session.
