I am often contacted by people who had bagpipes somewhere in their lives. Their parents played pipe music from the old country on records and tapes, or they would watch a pipe band marching down the street and would feel that strong emotion that bagpipes evoke, or a friend played. There are always good stories. It’s nice to play the pipes for these families when they’re saying goodbye to a loved one.
Pipe tunes include Amazing Grace, Danny Boy, The Dark Isles, Auld Lang Syne or my favourite, The Mermaid Song. There are many suitable pipe tunes. The piper can greet guests as they arrive or lead in the family or casket. Often a Scottish air is played in memory of the departed following a moment of silence.
