Yesterday afternoon I went to Colunga with one of my best friends. Colunga is a small town about 80km east along the coast and the trip was to order a bagpipe for his son as a Christmas present. The ‘luthier’ was much younger than I expected and was very outgoing and instructive, although I was completely lost when they started to talk about the finer musical points. Amazingly, he admitted that he couldn’t actually play a bagpipe although he could tune them and seemed to know everything about the differences between a Scottish, Galician and French version.
This is his shop and workshop. We had to step over the dog to get in as he didn't seem inclined to move.
