Library News and Events
Second annual Winter Reading & Arts Festival continues
By Dawn Anderson
Spirit of the Highlands
Saturday, January 10 at 2 pm on the library’s main floor.
Cedar Mill resident Matt Rucker will play Scottish and Irish tunes on the Walsh Shuttle Pipes. These bellows-blown pipes are similar in style and shape to pipes dating back to 1695 and are ideal for intimate performances where the Highland pipes would prove too overpowering. Matt’s repertoire includes a wide range of music from softly meditative to lively jigs and hornpipes.
Matt is in his senior year as a homeschooled student. He plays the Great Highland Bagpipe competitively as a soloist and was a winner at the 2008 Portland Highland Games. In his spare time, he is a piper with the newly formed Portland Metro Youth Pipe Band, writes computer games, studies piano and Aikido and is an active library volunteer.
