\"Piper\" doesn't adequately describe Fred Morrison.
Custom byline text:
It somehow underplays the point that Morrison displays his mastery of three types of bagpipes during a gig: the Highland version the public at large equate to "the pipes", their little brother, the slightly gentler-sounding, bellows-blown reel pipes, and their Irish cousin, the uilleann pipes, with which Morrison has a comical love-hate relationship. "Demon piper" comes close to describing him, at times, but then there's also his command of the low whistle to take into account – and that afforded a major highlight of this latest stop on his current tour.
