August TOTM: The Peacock Followed the Hen

Postby Dally » Fri Jul 29, 2011 7:21 pm

Thanks to everyone who voted. The tune of the month for August is "the
peacock followed the hen."
I didn't find a video on youtube of a NSPiper playing this tune, which
means we will remedy a sore deficiency on youtube. There is this
video, however:

There are numerous recordings of the tune, but if you need help finding
one please let me know. This tune is appropriate for Border pipes,
otherwise known as Northumbrian Half-long pipes, so hopefully a few
Border pipers will participate.

Please post links to your video or sound files here, and on the news group.

Have fun!

Great I love that tune. The videos are a brilliant idea for overseas players like myself to play along to. But as a beginner I find most of them too fast, it would be great if someone posted a video of someone playing it steadily at beginner speed? - if there is such a thing.....I know we all have our own preferred learning speed...

Good idea, Paul. This would be a good opportunity for proper pipers to show us how it's done properly.

Here's my Lowland version of the tune played on my Border pipes:

With permission I'm posting Pete Stewart's video:

I very much like the rhythm Pete gets out of the tune.

Northumbrian smallpipe (Peacock's) to follow. Still hoping the proper pipers will stop by to show us how it's done. 8-)

If you've never seen a Peacock in flight, here's your chance.

I hope you enjoy it.

That's an interesting slant, John, with the jazzy clarinet, well spotted!
