Och aye the noo.....!!


Like any big city Perth has it's fair share of  fabulous buskers and this super cool guy is one of my favorites, here he is doing his thing in Forest Chase. He rocks those bagpipes with traditional Scottish music played in a very different way, I remember we saw him once when my Mum was along too, being a true Scot she wasn't terribly impressed with his rendition of  'The Bonnie Banks O' Loch Lomond' and especially not 'Amazing Grace' haha! I've never spoken to him so I don't know if he actually is a Scot, next time. Hope you have  rockin' day.....!!

  4. Oh, I have to agree with Theanne!! How cool is this guy!! A mohawk, leather kilt and a bagpipe! Oh, yeah, my kind of guy! What fun! Thanks for the giggle, Grace! Can always use one of those on a gray, rainy, chill Monday!!

  7. He certainly looks animated!

    We could do with some creative busking down here, croaky old dudes with unruly facial hair & three chords just aren't doing it for me...

  8. You should have told him your name and got your own personal serenade.

  9. Looks like he´s having fun, that´s the most important thing!

  10. That's an aggressive stance. It reminds me of an American baseball player's body motions when swinging a bat.

    By the way, I tried to imagine Paul Hogan saying Shock & Oar and I still don't get it.

  11. Looks like one tough dude. Who would dare criticize him to his face?

  12. I love this! Takes guts to make those moves in a kilt! What a find! Be sure to find out more about him next time, Grace! We're counting on you!

  13. Your top photo is excellent. There is a rock bagpipe band that plays in Connecticut, called the Red Hot Chilli Pipers. Love the name, love your shot today.

  15. What great images...so perfectly composed!

  16. Amazing Grace played on the Bagpipes really tugs at the heart strings :-).

  17. A punk bagpipes player.....wow, He must be fun to watch and listen too!

  18. Wonderful action shot. I like the perspective and stance in the top one. Can almost hear those bagpipes screaming.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Eh bien dis donc! Il ne passe pas inaperçu, celui-là. Je pense qu'il obtient un grand succès et qu'il te tarde de pouvoir lui parler.
    Une attraction vivante!

  20. He looks like he's totally into it. Would love to hear what he sounds like.

    ReplyDelete
  21. I wonder what the traditional pipe majors would make of it all.

  22. I like Scottish music and this artist is very original.

  23. He is rocking with intensity, it would be interesting to hear how he sounds like!

  24. Makes a great and refreshing change from the usual pan-pipes and tin whistle...and he would certainly be a crowd-stopper with that look.

  25. l'angle de ta photo est trop bien

    en plus le joueur est particulièrement photogénique

    ReplyDelete
  26. Haha! Just as well those tiles or cobblestones or whatever he's standing on aren't two-way mirrors, huh?!

    ReplyDelete
  27. Wow, that's some bagpiper. Would like to hear him play. And a leather kilt...oh, by the way, speaking of kilt, there IS a way to see if he is a true Scottish bagpiper... ;<) :<o

    ReplyDelete
  28. Ha,ha,ha, this is really funny to see, a rocking piper! I can't imagine how it sounds, but his moves are very comic.

    ReplyDelete
  29. He's certainly quite the entertainer Grace!

    ReplyDelete
  30. He seems to have an athletic way to live his "scot attitude"! :o)

    ReplyDelete
  31. Great captures, Grace. The top one is fantastic!

    ReplyDelete
  32. a perfect POV to capture his moves.. love these shots!

    ReplyDelete
  33. Reminds me of the Dropkick Murphys of Boston.

  34. Och this is grrate! (Trying my Scottish accent here, hence the spelling. The accent is a wee bit rrrusty!)

    Whatever is played on a bagpipe I love. Love love love. Wish I could hear him!

    ReplyDelete
  35. Great shots. Good point. The position of musician - the bagpipe player - they are great captured from an unusual angle. Have a nice day. Sincerely, Peter.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Very interesting and I think you took great "action" shots...not a bagpipe fan but this guy would be fun to watch!

    ReplyDelete
  37. Knew I'd seen this bloke before; "Australias got talent"
    He's from Freo and is also on You Tube : Freos bagpipe player.

    ReplyDelete
