98 LOUISVILLE MAGAZINE 7.16 TOOL OF THE TRADE Photo by Chris Witzke "Dogs will howl. Cows will come and look at ya. Geese will come by. If they howl when they hear a siren, they'll probably howl at the bagpipes," says professional bagpiper Karen Brumley, who will perform during the annual Jane Austen Festival (July 15- 17 at Locust Grove). Brumley began playing the instrument in the Jeffersontown High School band in 1977. "There's a lot of complex movements. It does take a lot of air pressure to play. And the whole dynamics of blowing and then squeezing — fguring out how to make that work," she says. "Most people should expect it to take about two years before they're able to play a tune in public." — Jenny Kiefer
