At least they will have a decent harpist.
God help us…

    when you say decent I guess you mean NOT like this one: http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/news/uk/crime/article6881601.ece

    I was going to link to a Daily Mail story on same but felt ashamed.

    Yeah Q – with harpists it;s always close to the edge,,,

    Cool articles – “His dress code on most occasions is full ceremonial ’No1’ dress (with Royal Stewart tartan) but other options are Highland day wear (e.g. for funerals) and Highland evening wear (Prince Charlie jacket, dress shirt, bow tie – and kilt of course!). Rob offers a choice of tartans: Royal Stewart, Buchanan, Isle of Skye and Royal Regiment of Scotland”
    I’ll remember him for my funeral.

    Dewi,

    Do they live on Angelssey (?) are there any pockets of anti-British rule there?

  • Dewi,

    Didn’t you know that this is a recognition of the contribution that Welshmen, with their skills with string, gave to the English Army during the hundred years war.

    “None other can stir the blood, quicken the heartbeat, or move the soul as can the sound of the Great Pipe, whether heard in a great hall or borne down the glen on the wind.” – Col. David Murray

    Quote on yer piper man’s site, was at an indoor event recently where the pipes were played accompanied by a lambeg, well I think they were played as you couldn’t hear them over the sound of the drum. Not sure a lambeg would suit a wedding though 🙂

    Seymour Major,

    Last time you spoke of the Hundred Years war you tried to make out the Englezes won that little skirmish.

    Are you up to speed now?

    “She first performed for Prince William privately ahead of the Wales v South Africa rugby match at the Millennium Stadium in 2008.”

    Well, a gel’s gotta make a living.

    As to your funeral go for the choir of angels option, much easier on the eye than hairy arsed Scots providentially mooning as the wind blows through the churchyard.

    but remember that old Ulster Scots saying ” If you sell your drum in your own village, you keep the money and the beat” which is perhaps why so mony lambegs are sold to the Hibs.
