Piping with Alan Wade

Piping with Alan Wade

Charlie Gillen calls by to kailye with Alan Wade in Stranocum, who comes from a long family tradition of musicians.

Alan talks about his father Sam who was also an accomplished tin whistler, and we hear a rare archive recording of him playing. Alan also talks about the special bagpipes he plays and does a wee rendition of ‘The Battle of Waterloo’.(Broadcast: 19th April 2008)
