Repertoire

Rod’s Repertoire

Rod has a wide range of traditional Scottish, Irish and modern tunes for you to select from.  Some of the tunes play well with the pipes as a solo instrument. However, a large number can be accompanied by other instruments, including a church pipe organ. If you want an accompaniment for your service, you will need to advise Rod so he can ensure that the appropriate instrument is available (most bagpipes are tunes to a different pitch to blend in with accompanying instruments. However, he does have a set of ‘Orchestral’ or ‘B Flat’ pipes which offer a lower pitch.
