Bagpipes Galore.

Scozzesi (10)

L’estate scorsa abbiamo avuto la sorpresa di ascoltare una vera banda di cornamuse scozzesi che si esibivano proprio nel centro di Bardolino.  Io naturalmente ho fatto qualche scatto e una piccola ricerca e ho scoperto che si trattava nientemeno della banda di cornamuse dell’esercito britannico,  nella fattispecie il corpo dei radiotelegrafisti e addetti alla segnalazione:  The Royal Corps of Signals.  Fra l’altro,  nel 2020 compiono 100 anni di vita.

La banda era in tour in Italia e ha tenuto diversi concerti.  Devo dire che questi strumenti sono talmente straordinari e particolari che si fanno ascoltare con piacere quando capita.  Gli esecutori poi,  con le loro divise sgargianti,  si sono fatti notare fra i turisti…

Condivido un breve video con voi:

Bagpipes Galore.       

Last summer we had the pleasure to listen to a real bagpipes concert in the centre of Bardolino.  It was an amazing surprise and of course I took a few shots to share it.  Through a brief research I found out that it was no less than The Royal Corps of Signals,  the British Army corps specialized in installing and maintaining telecommunications equipment and information systems.  This year they celebrate their centenary.

The band is called:  Pipes and Drums.  They had a concert tour in Italy last September and played in various locations.  Bagpipes are extraordinary and so peculiar instruments:  always nice to hear.  The performers were a great view too,  in their unique uniforms.   Of course I took a short video.

  1. I love the sound of the pipes. We didn’t have it this year because of Covid, but each summer there’s a military band concert held on Parliament Hill that includes bagpipes, often including a band or two from a different country.

  2. Sono una fan delle cornamuse, essendo una fan della Scozia(anche, dirai tu… castelli, paesaggi,abiti tartan e gioielli molto particolari,stole… un po’ meno il clima …) e poi ho un cugino musicista che la suona alla grande!
    Buona domenica!

  3. You were so fortunate to see this band! Their uniforms pleased me very much, as well as this peculiar traditional music. I am sorry for commenting this late, but have been very exhausted due to my renovation project. Wishing a lovely new week.

  4. I once met a guy playing Irish (!) bagpipe. Sounds bit like the Scottish bagpipe but it looked different. I really enjoyed listening him to play. Not my usual music by no means but I really liked it.
