Featured Tune - Flowers of the Forest
The Flowers of the Forest is one of the great tunes of Scotland. The tune is a lament for the thousands of Scottish soldiers, nobles, and King James IV, who perished at the Battle of Flodden fought agianst England. Due to the reverence of the tune, it is only played in public at funerals or memorials for members of the Armed Forces.
The warm tone of the drones envelopes the crowd, while the brightness of the melody rolling off the chanter cuts through the envelope to create the perfect harmony that wraps the guests in a blanket of music. Only a Great Highland Bagpipe can create such an experience.
Michael takes pride in his instrument and his performances. He has been a piper at hundreds of events; played with over half a dozen pipe bands, including a grade 1 band; been an instructor in the NC State University Pipe Band; actively competes in grade 2 solo competitions; and has performed on stage with the six time Grammy Award winning band, The Chieftains.
