Irish vs. Scottish
Well, today we were at our regular session, which is a new location because the old burned down in January.
It runs from 3 to 6pm and the owner of the pub has been known to throw in a free beer now and then.
In comes a crowd of pipers and drummers fresh from one of the snake Saturday parades around town and they start making noises like they are going to fire up.
And then they do, right in the middle of one of our sets. Now mind they were close to the bar and we were one room away, but the racket was deafening.
We put our instruments down and listened for awhile, and they were good, no doubt. They had the crowd clapping and well engaged. They played about 4 tunes and then quit, so we fired back up and played some more.
Then after about 30 minutes the pipers and drummers come into our room and unleash a blow that had to go at least 90 decibels right behind where I was sitting. One of our guitar players put fingers in both ears. My wife and her parents were there listening and they got up and left.
They played a couple of tunes and then stopped again, so we came right back with a couple of sets of reels.
We’ve got some people that can’t be there at 3 and come in around 4-4:30. So about 5:15 one of the pipers ups and ask if they can play again because some of their people have to leave. So we told him………………..
Now what would you have done?
