An appreciation post for the Blue Mountains Piper! Travelling the Blue Mountains train line and beyond, your ears may glimpse the ancient melodies of pipes, horns, harps and an array of other eclectic instruments….Here is a picture of him playing the 7 course Renaissance lute (It’s not his, but he knows a lot about it!). Yesterday he added a Rodrigo Percussion Cajon, hand made in Goulburn, to his instrument collection; Instrument No.44.

Rodrigo is famous for his ‘Make your own Cajon’ kits, and his invention of the ‘rimshot sound’, built into the corners of his Cajons. Rodrigo Percussion is available at Katoomba Music.

Hope it serves you well Lachlan! Play on!
