Talking Bruce - Boring Piobaireachd [Vintage]


In this session we expound upon the ideas presented in Bruce's class about how to make piobaireachd not so boring! First rule is understanding both the history and structure of piobaireachd so that we give our ears a chance to get used to what we are listening to. Other musical ideas like phrasing, pulse, call and answer, etc. create music direction and define the musical message being performed.
