Barry-Funeral-Bagpipes 6th April, 2021

I was Bagpiping in Barry, Vale of Glamorgan today, for the Funeral of a local lady.  I played for staff & friends at the lady’s former Residential Care Home.  Requested tunes included: “Calon Lan”, “The Bonny Banks of Loch Lomond”, “Myfanwy”.  This selection also included, “The Blue Bells of Scotland” & “Cwm Rhondda”.

In addition, as the cortege departed I played, “The Green Hills of Tyrol” as it did its final pass of Barry Island.

The service took place at Cardiff and Glamorgan Memorial Park and CrematoriumI led the procession to the chapel with “The Mull of Kintyre” & “Highland Cathedral”.  Thereafter, other tunes included, “Flower of Scotland”, “Land of My Fathers” & “Going Home”.  These tunes reflected the lady’s Welsh & Scottish family links.

Our sincere condolences to the family & friends for what was an excellent Celebration of Her Life.
