Album Notes
The first stirrings of Haggis Rampant appeared in the fall of 2000, at the first annual Louisiana Renaissance Festival. Steve was feeding his renfest habit while looking for places to practice on his somewhat loud instrument. Okay, extremely loud instrument. Happily, he met a renfest merchant who was looking for just such an attention-getting device to situate in front of his place of business. It was an ideal pairing, and Steve played his pipes at the last two and a half weekends of the LRF. Life was good.

But, apparently, it could get better. Pam, missing the companionship that her marriage vows had lead her to expect, played her drum with Steve on the last day of the 2000 run, and, much to his chagrin, the show was so much improved that tips more than quadrupled.

Well, Steve may be deaf, but he is certainly no dummy. He immediately began pushing Pam to play more often, and offering to provide a drummer when people called for the bagpipes. And when the 2001 LRF came around, he contacted the faire and arranged to play the entire run.

And thus was Haggis Rampant born.

Steve Brownlee is an award winning piper, and has been playing bagpipes since 1996.

Pam Brownlee claims she plays the bodhran in self defense. She has to do something, or she would never see Steve.
