Wanney’s Yomp – Boxing Day silliness

Sunday, December 28th, 2014

Here’s a piece of ritual silliness that is the annual Wanney’s Yomp – when pipers from far and wide gather on top of Great Wanney crag in central Northumberland to play tunes, share cake and see whose fingers drop off first. As ever, we gathered on 26th of December about here: http://www.streetmap.co.uk/map.srf?X=393110&Y=583280&A=Y&Z=120

 

This year’s play list included amonst others: The Cold Night’s of Winter, Herd on the Hill, Bonny at Morn & Wild Hills of Wanney. After playing some tunes, we headed off to the local pub – the Gun Inn at Ridsdale for some warmth, beer and lots more music.
