Yesterday morning we received the sad news of the sudden death of Dr Roderick D Cannon. His name maybe most familiar to pipers as the author of 'The Highland Bagpipe and its Music', but many may be unaware of the seminal role he played in the 1970's in the revival of the bagpipe in England. Members of the LBPS will be aware of his great interest in the music of William Dixon; he chaired the 1997 collogue conference on the Dixon manuscript and was even heard to play Dixon's music at a meeting of the Piobaireachd Society. Others may be aware of his scholarly work on Piobaireachd and his edition of the Treatise by Joseph MacDonald. A man whose interest in piping recognised no boundaries.
His sudden and unexected demise leaves a large hole in the world of piping scholarship.
