    Very nice!

    BTW Bagpipes are keyed differently than standard western intervals, hence some notes sound “off” but it’s only because he doesn’t have them available on the scale the bagpipe uses.

    I wonder the backstory to this guy. Anyone know?

    I happened to be driving by 770 on that day

    He isn’t reading notes? So he knows the nigumin byheart

    It was actually beautiful and quite a lot of people seemed to be enthralled by the niggunim on bagpipes also. It didn’t sound the same on this tape though. Very lovely & special sound.

    I can’t stand it when people are so hipped up when they see something like this and they say tzadik nistar. chill take it easy. Not eveyone like this is a jew let alone a tzadik.Jewish Converts are origionally jewish so he might be jewish from one of the shvatim that are lost and he might convert nay day.

    To me it seems a Yid came to sing a song of tribute to the Rebbe after some soul searching . Many of the tunes where Elul slichos songs and Rebbe songs like tzomo lecho nofshi . also eli atta . mammer niggun . a soul ignited how refreshing if only we had some of this simplicity . shono tova umadka

    This person must have spent time with the Rebbe on Tishrei .
    Maybe a one time student in 770 or Hadar Hatorah way back and was drawn back by the Rebbe power .I am sure there are many more like him that will come and we will see the true power of chabad and Rebbe. hope he comes again .כתיבה וחתימה טובה

    Thank you. I really enjoyed this, and all the dedication, heart and soul, and whatever else you threw into this and brought along with it. It is out of the box and not normal but good not normal: extraordinary. Thank you for being courageous. Your story we’d love to know.
