EAT SLEEP PIPE REPEAT is the new collection of bagpipe music by Kyle Warren (Field Marshal Montgomery and ex Red Hot Chilli Piper). The book consists of 50 tunes, most of which are by Kyle, whilst there are also original tunes published in the book from famous composers such as Gordon Duncan, Chris Armstrong and Mark Saul.

The book includes tunes played by some of the best pipe bands in the world; Field Marshal Montgomery, Inveraray and District, Scottish Power Pipe Band and more!





By Captain Stuart D Samson, a range of material so that all levels of competency are catered for. I hope that this collection will be of interest to solo pipers and pipe bands alike, who may be looking for new tunes to add to their repertoire and also to musicians in the wider sphere of traditional music and its interpretation. In short, I hope that there will be something for everyone to enjoy.

There are 56 original compositions over a complete range of time signatures, including competition style marches, various simple and compound time marches, strathspeys and reels, hornpipes and jigs, slow airs and piobaireachds.
