This past weekend I had the pleasure of attending the Harrisonburg, VA Boston Beanery's annual At. Patrick's Day celebration. During saturday and sunday afternoons it was my job to pipe the goodie bucket around the restaurant a couple of times before it was deposited at some lucky table. We did this once every hour. It was great fun people watching. Naturally, at these functions there is a fair amount of heavy drinking, though that is certainly not something that the hired piper should be doing and this one followed that rule. There were also plenty of families enjoying a night out filled with joyous, if raucous, fun. Some of the tunes I played included:
The Irish Washerwoman
The Pikeman's March
...and a few others. While these tune are not ALL expressly Irish, I did hear a few of them while listening to the Irish music being played in the restaurant, and so felt somewhat vindicated :). And, yes, I did play "Scotland the Brave" during my last turn 'round on Saturday night :)! Why not? It was a request!
