KADEP was lucky enough to have its first bagpipe concert last Friday, June 10th. Ben Holmes, “Colorado’s Only Open Bagpiper”, has been playing the bagpipe for several decades. For the All Things Scottish group, Ben played a large number of songs for a very attentive audience of KADEP participants. Between songs, Ben talked of Scottish folklore as well as taught the audience about the intricacies of the Scottish Great Bagpipe. Ben is an extremely talented bagpiper and public speaker. The KADEP participants loved the show whether they were laughing at his jokes or listening to his jamming.
Thanks for coming out Ben!
Ben offers private bagpipe lessons as well as teaches several local area bagpipe bands. Please click below if you are interested.
