24 Piping and Drumming Hours In . . . Palmerston North, New Zealand Published: July 31, 2011

Libby O'Brien of New Zealand begins our new "24 Hours In . . ." series of feature articles exclusively for subscribers to pipes|drums. We're asking prominent pipers and drummers to highlight a single day of activities that they would recommend in a location that might be off the familiar path.

TIP OF THE DAY
Pipers: When making a taorluath or crunluath from D, slightly flex the right-hand’s fingers out a bit just before the movement. This will help to lift the ring-finger for that B gracenote.
