I just love it when things like this happen. After lunch time I was walking past Court Square when I heard what I thought was the sound of bagpipes. An odd and unexpected sound and at an unusual time of day to be sure so I thought I must have been mistaken. But upon turning to look back I indeed saw a bagpiper in a kilt who later introduced himself as Rob Calder, the Bagpipe Busker. (Busker = street performer) He is bagpiping his way across the United States this summer and, pay attention fellow bloggers Sparkling and Brenda, he'll be in Jackson, Mississippi tomorrow.
He has a website: http://www.bagpipebusker.com/ and explains why he's busking, the charity to which he will donate the money he makes and how he is relying on American Scots to help him get through the sixteen states he's mapped out. You can also see his route, the media coverage he's gotten along the way and follow him on Twitter.
