Cady Finlayson: Music

All Set for St. Pat's

(Cady Finlayson & Vita Tanga with Piper John Bradley and Colin Bell on the snare drum)
March 1, 2010
Medley: 2 trad. tunes and one by Terry Tully
"For the past ten years, I have played violin with the Police Pipes and Drums of Bergen County". I've had the chance to play in Pipe Tattoos (pipe and drum concerts) and for police memorial week in Cleveland, plus for the annual NYPD show that has been at Carnegie Hall and at New York's Town Hall. The feeling you get when you are playing surrounded by a circle of pipers is really incredible and I fell in love with the sound of the pipes. I've recorded on both of the pipe band cds, but I wanted to do my own track with pipes, and so here it is. We were lucky to get John Bradley to play pipes (I was in a band with him years ago), cause he just has that great blend. And Colin Bell came in with his snare drum...and the party began....
It was the first time bagpipes were recorded at Abstract Rhythm studios, and everyone except me was surprised at how loud they are up close!
