Again a picture out of my archive.

This is a regional player but also known in Flanders

The photo was taken during the visit of the King of the Belgians
Adegem to Diederik De Jaeger (61) will be extra stress on Sunday. He has been playing bagpipes for fourteen years during the annual ceremony. "In 2004 I was allowed to do that for Filip, who was still a prince at the time. Now he comes back as king ", says Diederik. "Of course I am nervous about that: I like to admit that. I always try to play as well as possible on my bagpipes, but on Sunday no single note can sound false. I also have to play a song while marching around the monument in the cemetery. I've practiced that constantly during the past week so that I know how many steps to take. "As a child, De Jaeger was already looking at the annual ceremony at the cemetery. "Then that was still with Canadian soldiers and with real pipers. My predilection for the bagpipes then arose. So it is a great honor that I can now do this for our king on Sunday! "
I hope you can enjoy.
