And now for something completely different.

This is Swedish musician Gunhild Carling out front of a swinging big band on the open-air stage at Central Park, New York, tearing it up on the bagpipes*.

You’re welcome.

 

 

(*to  be precise these are a kind of traditional Swedish bagpipes known as the säckpipa).
