Pipe down please!

Posted on Thu, Jul 26, 2012 at 2:47 PM

Dear north end bagpiper,
At first I thought your occasional daytime outdoor bagpiping was a bit irritating, but I also thought it was cool to have a bagpiper in the neighbourhood. As the summer wears on though, it's become a real hassle. And it turns out I'm not the only one who thinks have become notorious in our neighbourhood! Even though I appreciate that you keep your outdoor bagpiping to reasonable hours (usually the afternoon), it is still disruptive to those of us who work from home (it's very hard to concentrate on the task at hand during a bagpiping session), who have young babies at home (who get woken up by your piping even when they are in a bedroom with windows closed and a fan on for white noise) or who just want to enjoy some peace and quiet in our neighbourhood. Perhaps you could take your bagpiping indoors or to a public place like a park? —Peace Not Pipes
