Hear the pipes are calling

Piper Lynne Clarke, of the City of Dunedin Pipe Band, performs in The Smith Gallery, at the Toitu Otago Settlers Museum yesterday morning, to celebrate St Andrew’s Day, the Scottish National Day.

Flower of Scotland, Scotland the Brave and other memorable works were performed during two visits to the museum — at 11am and 1.30pm — by Mrs Clarke.

She was pleased with the friendly reception she received as she walked through the museum complex, performing for about 20 minutes on each visit.

‘‘You don’t always get that response when you play the pipes. I don’t play that often on my own. It’s often with a band,’’ she said.
