Throwback Thursday: John D. Burgess


The late, great John D. Burgess plays "Bobby Cuthbertson" and "The Swallow Tailed Coat" whilst a giddy Seamus MacNeill looks on. Video seems to be from the early 1980s. Interesting to hear how playing styles have shifted a bit in the light music but there is no questioning the rhythmic control and flow of the great man.

Vin Janoski Vin is a long-time piper based on the east coast of the USA. He has been on the Executive Committee of the EUSPBA and been the editor of the acclaimed Voice magazine. Recently, he has played in the Grade 1 Oran Mor Pipe Band, and the Grade 1 Stuart Highlanders pipe band. He currently produces the websites Pipehacker.com and WhiskyTunes.com.... And, needless to say, he spends way too much time than is allowed for any one person playing, writing about, and thinking about bagpiping.
