I was once talking to the local drunk in the pub about the soundtrack to this film. The guy was off his tits and told me he could play it all on the bagpipes (note this conversation took place in Lancashire, not somewhere you ever expect anyone to have seen any bagpipes let alone claim to play them).
The guy could tell I thought he was full of shit and I went to sit down with my drink. He finished his whisky and went out to the car park and into the boot of his vehicle. Two minutes later he walked back in the pub and played The Gael note perfect! Nobody in the pub has ever heard live bagpipes before, including myself. I didn’t realise how loud they were!
Turns our he was some sort bagpiper in the army and had performed all over the world and in front of people like the Queen.
