Dirty Linen: Bagpipes 2

Iain MacInnes, Tryst

The great Highland bagpipes are featured on two tracks, "Highland Lassie/The Hen's March/The Snuff Wife" and "The Highland Brigade at Waterloo/Glasgow Gaelic Club/Duncan MacGillivray, Chief Steward." In both sets, the Highland pipe's distinct sound creates variety, despite the fact that both sets are ensemble pieces, featuring guitar, fiddle and bass as well.

Highland Tunes for Fiddle
Ceol na Fidhle Volume One - Fiddlers have always been interested in the bagpipe repertoire but found the notation in the bagpipe books difficult to read due to lack of key signatures and pipe grace notes which have their own interpretation when played on the fiddle. In making the fiddle arrangements of these tunes such eminent pipers as John D. Burgess, Norman Gillies and Duncan Macgillivray were consulted regarding appropriate grace notes and interpretation of the spirit of pipe tunes played on the fiddle.

After Stirling, I formed a group with Duncan MacGillivray and Christine Martin back in Easter Ross, where I come from. Duncan went on to join the Battlefield Band, and Christine has published a lot of Scottish music books with her company Taigh Na Teud, now based in Skye. Duncan is best known as a piper, but is also very good on guitar, whistle and mouth organ. Christine mostly played fiddle, but later became good on the clarsach.

Scottish music album: A Controversy of Pipers
Ex-Battlefield Band bagpiper Duncan MacGillivray (also an accomplished whistle player and guitarist) received much inspiration during his early years in piping from his father D.P. MacGillivray who was a well established piper and Gold medallist from Ross-Shire. This was followed by tuition received at Glenalmond from another Gold medallist, P/M Jimmy MacGregor. Duncan left Battlefield Band in 1983 has his hands full being a farmer in Easter Ross. He continues to play and is still winning piping competitions. In 1997 he achieved the top award in Piping when he won the Gold Medal at the Northern Meeting in Inverness.
