Right on the day that we also planned a livestream on Facebook. So David Myles came over to the Rapalje Studio and we showed the different bagpipes used at concerts from Rapalje..
International Bagpipe Day is now a well established and increasingly popular event. Every March 10th you are invited to go out and play your pipes – anywhere, anyhow to anyone! In 2013 we had an excellent event in Pitt Rivers Museum in Oxford – amazingly – visitor numbers increased by 25% compared to normal attendance at that time of year. We also received reports back from around the world, ranging from a pipe band performance in an underground cavern in South Africa, to a party on an Athenian hill in Greece.
It’s a beautiful place. Also to take a stroll in the evening. Just for a night walk or whatever. And we got a beautiful sunset
So we are going fishing for trout
It’s been a long time since I’ve been fishing, about 20 – 30 years
When I don’t got nothing to do I come here Just for rest
Normally I don’t got nothing. I don’t even need bait. I don’t hook the fish up. But, if I’m hungry, then it’s trout alarm
Then I’m coming with my special bait. I fish with worms and fake bait
And when we catch something. What are we going to do with it? Going to eat it! You kill it, I grill it
We look like real fisher men. Specially William with the beard
When we say in German: “Petri heil”. Means “Good luck for fishing” in German
If children what to fish here they have to do a 2 days course. To learn how to fish and to remove a hook from a fish mouth. Because it can be very painful. And how to kill a fish as well. If you want to eat him. Otherwise you throw him back and let him free
Fishermen always telling stories about these things. What the best bait is and whatever. But believe me. There’s no best bait. And there’s no good fishermen. There’s just stupid fish who bites in the bait
We are very good for the animals. We’re not a threat for animals at all. Maybe we will be vegetarians some day. We never catch animals. Vegetarians are only bad hunters
Welcome to another livestream on facebook. And another Rapalje Show on YouTube.
Where do you see our videos?
Because there are many videos every week with a live stream. We have a Rapalje Show made from this live stream. With extra material and videos I shot in between. Funny moments, things we’ve done in the past.
I want to know where you see our videos Do you watch them on YouTube? On Instagram? Facebook? On Vimeo? Or are you a patron
And you watch the videos on our Patreon account, with the extra videos we make as well
In this video you will see one of the last edits I did for the Dominican Republic We met our good friends, the musicians, from the band that performed, at our table and on all the tables from all the people who where eating there. We met them a couple of nights before because we did a session, played together on the beach
I found some other “gems”. Also did a very special edit I was waiting for because it was so much work to get it all synchronized. You will see this in the end and there’s a special treat for our patrons as well
On our Patreon page https://www.patreon.com/rapalje_celtic_folk_music , you can also see and hear all the extra musicians and extra party and things we are doing on our tour in the Dominican Republic And this is an edit from all the places we performed this song “Galway Girl”
I need to practice some more to write on this blackboard
I made some videos and some outdoor recordings from this nice building Zollhaus in Leer and how we are performing here
About 1/3 of all people who are watching the YouTube videos and also the livestreams, are Dutch. The other 1/3 is German and the 3rd 1/3 from another language and don’t understand German or don’t understand Dutch. So, that’s the reason that I talk English To make it easier for everybody. But I know not everybody understands English well enough That’s the reason we got subtitles
Maybe you have friends or family of colleagues who also want to understand what I’m talking about in English. With subtitles in your language. So we can try to find somebody who can translate it for you Please let me know where you’re coming from and which language you prefer..
