My daughter in Georgia posted few videos that I would like to share.

My granddaughter performing the Highland Fling: She has been in competition since the age of six and has won many awards.

Her husband Joe performing a Piobaireachd (The subjects of piobaireachd music are quite varied but share the common theme of commemorating a specific event. The categories of piobaireachd include: Laments, Salutes, Gatherings, Rowing. In general, the categories of piobaireachd do not have distinctive or consistent musical patterns that are characteristic of the category. However piobaireachd was written for specific events, personages or situations.)

Their band minus Carol who is video tapping (her husband is the second piper in line):

Thank you. I hope she decides to do it. It is a wonderful way to keep them busy in something that is healthy for them.

It's good to start early as it is a challenging thing to learn. It requires a lot of dedication too. My daughter has to drive Erica to Atlanta once a week for lessons; which is a one and a half hour drive one way, and then attend the games as well.

Carol & Joe practice nearly every night either on their bags or a small pipe. When they do the bags, it blows you out of the house!! :rofl: There is no volume control button on those things. I have to say that when I attend the games, the sound the groups make causes my hair to stand up on end with excitement.

Ive always loved watching this. When I was a little girl, at the dog shows I use to wander off to watch all the highland dances. What I loved most is the sword dancing. Awesome.

Erica spent a lot of time learning the sword dance. She used to practice in my kitchen using the patterns on the floor.




Cooling off after the competition.
