By the time you read this I will be in the UK with this guy here.
While he has competed in the World Pipe Band Championships
twice before this will be his first trip with the top-in-the-US
Grade One Oran Mor Pipe Band out of Albany, NY.
Tomorrow there is a competition in Lisburn, Northern Ireland
-- Ulster Pipe Band Championships -- then mid-week
we head to Glasgow, Scotland for the World's next Saturday.
You can catch live online coverage from the BBC here.
