As well as selling tweed jackets, I am a professional musician, performing on many ancient and modern musical instruments. When I needed new covers for two of the types of bagpipe that I play, there was only one choice of material to make. So, along with a friend who could wield a sewing machine, we repurposed two Harris Tweed jackets and voila, two well dressed bagpipes!
This is my English Border Bagpipe.
The style is from the Carlisle region of Northern England.
A bagpipe covered by an act of Parliment.
This is my Biniou from Brittany -
the type of bagpipe is a Veuze from
the south of the country.
A true Scottish / Breton collaboration.
... and after a very exciting day, it's time for bed.
Thanks so much to my friend Christine Denise Day for working with me to create these beauties. I can't wait for my next gig, so that I can show off them off in public.
