The Chieftains and Special Guest, Me

The St. Pat's bagpiping season kicked off today.  The Chieftains called and needed myself and a few other pipers to play with them in concert at the Kimmel Center.  Philadelphia here we come!  

We drove in the driving rain from New York to Philadelphia and made it in time of rehearsal and sound check. (I just using those musician terms, makes me feel like a real one...)

The Chiefains are pros and brill musicians. They put on that show that leaves you feeling like you got it all: you laughed, you cried, you wanted to dance.

The pipes went great and it was a ball being with the Chieftains on such a beautiful stage.  I am ready for U2 now. When will they call?
