Do I Hear Bagpipes...

Here's the band Tartanic which we saw a couple weekends ago at the Renaissance Festival. I thought I'd give them a little coverage this morning because when I talk about the instruments that bring me the most pleasure such as tuba, cowbell, harmonica, banjo, and accordion I sometimes forget to mention the bag pipes. 

I have seen these guys play before and I have one cd by them and I bought a live recording by them this day. Seems like the studio recordings might be a little more on the eletronica  side while the live recording contains a lot of live "chatter" and humor. Pick which you like when you buy to support the band. 

I like this bass drum head. Make a good back tattoo. If I had the space to spare I'd turn it up side down. 

Dancers with the band are always good. People dance to my band's music but they don't get up and dance "with" the band. Posted by Picasa

Speaking of supporting live music (shameless self promotion requesting money, compliments and publicty) check out me at the Lufkin VFW tonight. Show starts at 8pm.
