Scotus Folklore: bagpipes in the US (45) RE: Folklore: bagpipes in the US 26 Apr 07

Just so nobody gets the wrong idea, I played for 15 years in a group (Heritage) that included Northumbrian pipes, Scottish small pipes and Highland great pipes. In our travels we befriended players of the Italian Zampogna and Occitan Musette. Now - I don't play the pipes, but I DO like to hear them (well) played.

Finding myself now living in SW Virginia (the heart of old-time music) I was struck by the lack of any documented tradition of piping alongside the obvious importation of Scots fiddle tunes and styles.

So that's where I'm coming from (as they say in Kelty).
