Pompous Bagpipe Singer’s ‘Going Home’ Is the Most-Watched Bagpipe Performance in History
The pompous bagpipe performance of one of the greatest bagpipers of all time has been dubbed “going home” by the BBC.
The award-winning performance by George Martin has been played on BBC Radio 5 live since 2012 and it has been broadcast by millions of listeners worldwide.
The BBC has also broadcast the performance on its flagship Radio 1 and 2 radio stations.
The show is part of a wider series of performances which will be aired in 2017, with a final performance to be played at the 2018 World Pipe Championship in the UK.
Pompouse George Martin’s famous pompose bagpipe playing is the BBC’s most-watched performance in history, BBC Radio5Live has confirmed.
“This is not going to be a repeat performance.
This is not an attempt to be like the one we did on January 25th and 26th, 2015,” said Mr Martin, who died in May.
“The BBC have made this a very special event, and I’m really proud of that.”
George Martin, whose famous pompeo bagpipe was played by his friend and fellow Pompose George Martin on the BBC5 live show, has won the BBCs most-popular performance award, and is the only person to win two awards in the same year.
Mr Martin was also the winner of the World Pipe Federation Pipe Player of the Year Award in 2004, and the Pipe Player Of The Year Award of 2005.
“It is the most-viewed performance in the history of the BBC, and we want to say thank you to everyone who has tuned in to listen,” said Pompoose Martin.
“We had a great time, and it’s really special to be able to celebrate this in the way that we did.”
The winning performance is the first time that the BBC has aired a performance from a bagpipe player who was not born in the British Isles, and also the first performance to air in Britain since its return to the US in 2008.
Mr Dolan, who played on the show for 10 years, said the BBC had been watching closely for the performance and had seen it play.
“I was in tears when I saw the video.
I was so happy, I just couldn’t believe it,” he said.
“When I watched it, I was like, ‘Wow, that’s something special.'”
The BBC said that the show had been the most popular performance in its history.
“There’s been a huge number of people watching it in the past two years, and a lot of people will continue to tune in to hear more about it,” said BBC World Service director of production Chris Jones.
“But we are looking forward to the performance to the best of our ability.”
It is believed that George Martin is the oldest performer to win an award in the US.
“Pompous George Martin was born in St Louis in 1922, and was a pipe player in the St Louis Pipe Band,” Mr Jones said.
