Most people are familiar with “Amazing Grace”, the bagpipe melody that bands often play at military funerals. However, this tune is not Scottish; it came to the bagpipe by way of England. The author and lyricist wrote this song aboard a slave ship bound for home. Although this popular song soon gained a strong following in Protestant churches, this haunting melody has lyrics that speak neither of Scotland nor of the lives of people who created the Great Highland bagpipes.
We are thrilled to be featured on the Christian Broadcasting Network and associated with the movie “Amazing Grace”. We have played and discussed this song for our entire lives, and it never gets tiring.
Amazing Grace is truly a song that will last in the hearts of men and women as a beacon of hope and force of inspiration.
