While he was neither my first teacher nor my last, when people ask me who taught me to play, I tell them without hesitation that it was Ed Neigh. He was Pipe Major of the Guelph Pipe Band during my time with him. Watching him teach a rag-tag group of mid-level pipers how to play together well enough to win the North American Pipe Band Championship in 1976 was a priceless education in the analysis of pipe music and technique. We’ve drifted apart in recent years, but i’ll never forget what he did for me in my youth, both as a piper and as a person.
