NTS Radio: with Cassandre Balbar


This week's was a very special show, as we were joined by the musician, academic and Galician bagpipe expert Cassandre Balbar. Having written a PhD on Maltese pipes at SOAS, Cassandre now lectures at Lincoln, when she's not organising the International Bagpipe Conference or gigging around Europe with various bands. In short, she's one busy bagpipe lady. For this show, she played records from various international pipers, performed solo and was also joined by the lyra player Thodoris Ziarkas for some duets of ancient Greek music. An honour!
