Way cooler than BJ Clinton playing the sax.

VERY impressive! What a Barr of a guy.

The Great Highland Bagpipe...an implement of war...give me the pen and I will sign!
And here's a remarkable coincidence: A clip of the 2018 Grade 1 World Championship Pipe Band, with Emma Barr as their Drum Major. This is an exceptional band.
About 99% of the people here dont get that tattoo and tattoo are two different words with separate etymologies.
He’s played the pipes since he was 10. Now we know how he got to be such a brave man!
Loved the pipes but also his sense of humor! Pleasant surprised on both accounts.
