Well, no, not really. I just live far too far awy from anywhere. To tell the truth, in the city (20 minutes away), there are 120 000 people. There are also 73 562 pipers. Out of these 73 362 play the GHB ,and 199 the SSP. just my luck that I don't play either, and the music i'm interested in doesn'...

So youre familiar with the pipes of Joel Robinson (? think thats the name ?)
in NYC, +Paul Beekhuizen in NE?
I have the opprotunity of hearing Joan Kimball, Tom Zajac, & Adam Gilbert playing 'in consort' with Piffaro often. "Pan's Fancy' lives a couple of blocks from me. 8)
nice pipes, BTW :D :D

Yeah theyre 6 or 8 palmi Zamps; If Siclilan, then it'll play in a minor mode; if continental (Abruzzo, Calabria, etc) then It'll play major like the Molise type. There's only 2 or 3 who'll make the large ones anymore: Pino Salamone is one: http://www.totarella.it/laboratori.htm The Forastireo (sic) ...

Gregory,the 3 possible adresses in that list are in areas I would think twice before sending a squad of marines to, in broad daylight. ( Chas E: 2028 Mole, CM Taylor + Co: 1719 Gratz, Chas T: 1409 Ontario, for exapmle); Although one or both may have lived there at time of census, shop may have been ...

Well, thats something I didnt know!... according to my source, in the preface of ONE of the 8 books, 'Ionic St' is mentioned as the street their shop was on. So I want to prove it before continuing in this direction, + then track down the address if it checks out....

Well, I'm onto something, and strangely enough, from word of mouth, not from any of the excellent resources everyone has pointed me to. But in order to prove the lead, I need someone who has a VERY VERY old edition of O'neill's, with the preface still intact...much earlier than my 1976 Oak ed. Feel ...

Taylor's Address in Philly

Gregory, this is an incredible resource! THANKS! As you can see, there are lots of Taylors, and half a dozen 'Charles' listed under carpenter, machinist, engineer (which I suspect 'pipemaker' would have fallen under in the census.) Surprising that there are more South Phily streets among them than r...
