Bagpiper Rocks the Bay

I always thought that spoon playing was at the edge of musical oddities.  But last Friday night when I saw a young man wander through the crowd with Bagpipes, I thought oh boy this will be a new experience.... The young man's name is Greg and he is stationed at Fort Drum.  He boasted of his heritage as 100% Ukrainian. You will see that he plays the windbag as good as any Scotsman.   I was lucky enough to catch the two songs he did on video.  The first is Tomorrow Never Ends by the Beatles.  The second is the reverent Amazing Grace. Did you know that Bagpipes are now primarily made in Pakistan?
