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
Last week David announced a mystery, we are going to do something new. This year we are transforming three of our coolest shows to a new Celtic Folk Festival, on the picture David shows our first show in EM2 Groningen. Zomerfolks best bands are coming, will we see you there?
