SHIPPING UP TO BOSTON/ENTER SANDMAN – Bagpipe Cover (The Snake Charmer x Goddesses of Bagpipe) (2019)

My wife: “Hey let me pull something up on YouTube— wait, what is that?”

Me: “Oh, it’s a weird bagpipe mashup cover video that I love.”

My wife: “…and you didn’t think I’d be interested?”

Ah, married life.

But I digress. What I adore about this is: they are all amazingly talented musicians who make this work across nations, and they’re also absolutely showing the fuck off. They have pride in what they do and how they do it — as they should! They’re performers performing and reveling in it — holy hell, their finger work is brilliant — and it’s astounding, and it’s brilliant, and they’re also absolutely fearless in public and I cannot get enough of it!

“Do you have a metronome?”

“I do, but I have to warn you: it’s cursed.”


Yup. My kind of folks.
