... Funny thing for me was that most of the people I met who were in pipe bands were "wannabe" Scots.
Over the Border here in Basel, Switzerland, the have each year a massive big Pipe Band day with hundreds of bands. I think they actually call it The Basler Tattoo. I went one time with a German mate and couldn't wait to get chatting with some o' the big bagpipe players who all looked about as Hielan'
as you can get.
Not a Jock among them.
They were Swiss, they were German, they were Austrian to a man.
Still, it's nice to know that we have that effect on people all over the world.
Wait a minute ... I've got my eye on a burd.
