Bagpipes Video Series: McPherson's Lament / Banjo Breakdown

A lone drummer starts. Fifes join in. Finally, the bagpipes add their stentorian voices. The 42nd Royal Highlanders record another piece to be used as a web extra for Music K-8, Vol. 22, No. 4. Time: 3:15.

This is one of a series of videos offering a behind-the-scenes look at the October 2011 recording session with The 42nd Royal Highlanders. Their bagpipes, fifes, and drums were featured in John Riggio's song "Emerald Isle" (Music K-8, Vol. 22, No. 4).
