you can do what most people do on youtube...make a video with the music in it. as your image, just use their album cover or just write the artist and song title...put the music as the audio of the video, and then in the description put something about not claiming rights to the music. most people get away with it, as long as they credit the artist.

The GHB was first used in Breton music in the late 19th century though the bagad thing was inspired by the army pipe bands which the Bretons seen during the WW1 & 2. Unlike pipe bands however, bagads don't put much emphasis on the militarisitc stuff. Bodadeg ar Sonerion (BAS), the Breton equivalent of the Pipe Band Association, has existed since 1943, just 13 years after the formation of the RSPBA and now represents around 8,000 musicians.

As for uniforms, very basically each town had it's own traditional costume (which continued to evolve up until war time) and the bagads remain pretty faithfull to this, although things obviously continue to evolve.

Example;

Quimper traditional costume (c1900?)

Bagad Quimper present day

Personally speaking, after almost 30 years of pipe banding and 8 years of playing in a bagad, I know what uniform I'm more comfortable wearing ;-)

Mr Haslip. When I first came on this forum, I was right at the start of my "Born Again" phase, piping wise. As a result, being an opinionated old Dinosaur, I made some comments which basically led to me making an arse of myself through ignorance.

I believe you have just achieved that status too, well done. Now I'm not above still achieving that status, but I don't do it as often.

These guys make the hair on the back of my neck stand on end. Their music is fantastic, and yes, they are good players. Have a look at the youtube Bagad concerts and champs. If it doesnt do the same for you, I'd be surprised. Well, maybe not.

Notwithstanding the above, thanks for the amusing thought of you playing in yer pants. I may be a Dinosaur, but I retain a childish sense of humour, with a hint of smut thrown in.

Here's to the pants.

Ok, I thought I knew what "pants" meant (an article of clothing). Then I had to learn what "pants" meant in British slang ("Not good; total crap; nonsense; rubbish; bad"). Now I've had to google again and find that "pants" is also a British term for underwear.
So if I read your post correctly, Heed, what you're saying is the you do not think the piping is pants, but they are not playing IN their pants?
I will not say a dickie bird more other than I suppose there could be an entire thread dedicated to regional slang (A quick peek at the shoutbox has me completely baffled).

From http://www.rspba.org/html/ordersandrules.php

Dress

Quote:
4.35. At all contests Bands must appear in uniform dress which must be the same except for minor detail, e.g. where Drummers wear uniform different to that of the Pipers.

4.36. Any further exception must have the approval of the Board of Management.
