Description

Written and performed by David Colvin. The tragic and comic tale of the greatest bagpiper who ever lived. Fresh from sell-out previews at Celtic Connections and Piping Live!, a one-man emotional rollercoaster exploring how the traditions of bagpipe music were rocked by Perthshire bin man Gordon Duncan, and how he changed the life of one young piper from Fife forever. Includes swearing and a four-piece rock band. Take whatever romantic notions you have of bagpipes and leave them at the door. 'Had no idea what to expect from Thunderstruck... but it was immense' (Gary West, BBC).
