Amazing Grace --- Bagpipes

Watch and listen to Bagpiper Jean Orcutt perform Amazing Grace at the Palmer Monument Dedication Ceremony, Sunday, June 6, 2010, at Lann Cemetery, Splunge, Monroe County, Mississippi. Click this link: http://hillcountryhogsblog.blogspot.com/2010/06/amazing-grace-by-piper-jean-e-orcutt.html


  1. Splendid.

    It was sometime in the early 80's. I was visiting Emerald Mound in Adams County. It was a summer weekday. My wife was passing time with needlepoint in the car whilst I daydreamed on the western-most (and highest) part of the temple mound.

    At first, I thought it was my imagination...but then I saw him. A solitary piper, dressed in kilts, marching from the southwest to northeast diagonally across the site, piping "Scotland the Brave." What a moment!

    I love bagpipes -- and by extension, the Celts and my heritage.

    Good post on a great site.
