Pipers

PipersPipers: A Guide to the Players and Music of the Highland Bagpipe Pipers takes the reader inside the world of the performer community, introducing what pipers do, how they do it, and why. Dr Willie Donaldson’s original approach shows how ‘traditional music’, often assumed to be the anonymous product of a dim and distant past, is the creation of gifted individuals operating in a sophisticated and vigorously ongoing enterprise. Since pipers have often been skilled also on the fiddle, keyboards and small-pipes, or as singers or dancers, their story offers fascinating insights into the whole traditional music and song repertoire of Scotland.

Pipers is a well-informed and highly readable account by a prize-winning author who is a piper and composer of pipe music as well as an internationally recognised historian of Scottish tradition.
