Compositions by Gord(on) MacDonald of Island Bagpipe

Many of you will be familiar with Gord MacDonald of Island Bagpipe. Gord also runs a bagpipe identification website. Gord and I have gone back and forth about a few things piping over the years and I have used Island Bagpipe as a retail supplier many times (sometimes it’s cheaper shipping from Canada!). Many years ago, I’m thinking 2013, I asked around for tunes that people had composed that I could play on the blog and Gord took me up on it. He didn’t know it would take 6 years but I finally got around to recording the tunes he sent me; though I’m still sight reading them so bare with me a bit.

Pipes are Colin Kyo drones and chanter with Ackland 480 drone reeds and Husk chanter reed. Enjoy!
