 On Being High on GHB
On behalf of your Committee, it brings me great pleasure to invite you and your Guests to our February meeting, titled "On Being High on GHB".

Bagpipes are found all around Europe, but no other culture is stronger affiliated to the instrument than the Scottish. But why is it so? And how did the Great Highland Bagpipe (GHB) become the Scottish Instrument par excellence? 

In this evening’s talk our Society Piper, Nikolai Hagen Huse, will guide us through a brief history of the bagpipes and give us an overview of the importance of the Great Highland Bagpipe on the Scottish national identity. Through old and new melodies he will tell a story of grief, war, dance and the importance of clinging to one’s traditions. 

We strongly advise that you bring a set of earplugs...
