The Scottish got bagpipes from Ireland. What we didn’t tell them was that it was a joke.

ALEXANDRIA, Va. — I don’t get out much, so it figures that when I actually get an evening to hit Murphy’s in Old Town for some Irish music they have…Scottish bagpipers. Now, I dont’ feel the same way about pipers as my Northern Irish friend, but it was not what I was expecting. Just my luck right? Normally I’d get a photo of the band playing, but it turns out bagpipers sets are pretty short and I didn’t have time, so I just went with the exterior of Murphy’s. Also, I tried Bushmills while I was there and I won’t bother again.
