Scientific Inquiry

In the name of the scientific method, we have proposed that a truly scientific question must be answered on this tour: are Northumbrian Smallpipes improved by the addition of wine and sun, and that we must consider whether the experience of the players is improved, AND whether the experience of those listening is improved. To answer this question will require rigorous questioning and numerous tests. We propose that as a group we all formulate general theories about this question, make observations, formulate hypotheses and then rigorously test test test! The three weeks of the Tour 2018 will provide limitless opportunities to tackle this demanding task.
