Contacting Patrick Sky

Hello,

I want to order a book from Patrick Sky, but despite many efforts over the last few weeks I can't seem to reach him via email, and his email address is the only contact information I have.

Might you assist? Is there another way to reach him that you might provide?

Sincere thanks,

A.C.

Lawrence Thompson pipe bags

Hello,

I need contact information for the purchase of a Lawrence Thompson Uilleann Pipes bag.

Also, I have seen, and searched, for the name both as Thompson, and Thomson. Which is correct?

Might you assist?

Sincere thanks,

A.C.

Re: Finger G# on D Chanter?

Hello,

With apology for my delay in getting back to you, please accept my thanks.

Indeed, it's a tricky move, but I already succeed at a rate of about .0001% so things will only get better from this point forward.

All the best,

A.C.

Finger G# on D Chanter?

Hello,

I thought that I could easily look this up, but have had no luck.

Is it possible to play an upper octave G# on a D chanter?

And, if so, how is it fingered?

Sincere thanks,

A.C.

Upper Octave Fine (but only Legato)

Howdy, I'm a UP Newbie... At this stage of the game, I can play in the upper octave easily, and with reasonable facility, but only if I play legato, that is, with open fingering. If I try to move to the upper octave playing staccato, that is, with closed fingering, well, things don't go quite so wel...

Source for High Quality reeds

Howdy,

I am looking for a source for (predictably) high quality pipes reeds.

It would be convenient if the source was in the U.S. but that is certainly not necessary.

Sincere thanks,

A.C.
