We went to Durham this weekend and saw the site of the gaol where Jamie Allan the famous small pipes player was held. He was not hung but died in captivity aged 77, just before his pardon was announced! I played the tune named after him on my newly aquired Bb/F Lachenal anglo, in F of course!

 

 

 

here's an article on him
