    What the heck is with the t-shirts? and why isn’t style guy on top of this? I want answers! In case anyone hasn’t seen photos of the 78th at Kincardine, a mess of them were wearing Road to the Worlds” t-shirts……ontop of their waistcoat

    Well done to Peel – continually improving! Nice playing. Please switch to Sinclair chanters though. You’d go to another level, tonally speaking. The current chanter sound is brassy and harsh.
