God sends bagpipes & kilt to launch Celtic Treasure

Had a great day signing Celtic Treasure in my home town Nottingham today. I couldn't believe it, because when I arrived, I could hear bagpipes. I had just commented on Facebook that I wished I'd got a Scottish bagpipe player there. And there he was, just metres away and so here's the photo. Wasn't God good to send me such a Celtic asset! We had great fun after celebrating in the oldest pub in England, 'Ye Olde Trip to Jerusalem' afterwards.


  1. It's very odd, but I think God must like the bagpipes!

    I remember when we did the Hopes and Dreams production in Nottingham at the turn of the millennium, Paul Field told us of how as they were recording the Lord's Prayer track they realised that what they needed was a piper. Just a short time later they found one - busking in the street close by.

    Q. Do you know why bagpipers are always marching as they play?
    A. They are trying to get away from the noise.

    Q. What's the difference between a lawnmower and bagpipes?
    A. You can tune a lawnmower.

  2. Ha - those are great jokes Ian. Thanks Liz
