Pipe Major Roddy MacDonald

The family and friends of Roderick D. MacDonald of Carmel, Indiana USA were deeply saddened when he passed away in March of this year at age 38.
Roddy was a gifted piper whose instructors included [but weren't limited to] his father, Roderick A. MacDonald, Neil Angus MacDonald, and Duncan Johnstone.
He competed successfully from 1984 to 1987 and in 1987 became P/M of the Celtic Cross Pipe Band of Indiana. Under his leadership the band enjoyed much success in competitions around the midwestern U.S.
If this jig projects a high-spirited, uplifting feeling to the listener I will have succeeded in memorializing my friend in the manner which I intended.
