Thread Name: bagpipe music question
Subject: RE: bagpipe music question
Nothing to do with this really, but last year, there was a question on University Challenge concerning bagpipe music. It was the music round, and the contestants had to distinguish between the sounds emanating from various bagpipes. Uillean, Northumbrian, Highland pipes - easy peasy. I think the French cornemuse was another. But the one I stumbled on was the Galician bagpipes. What is so distinctive about the Galician pipes that sets them apart from most other European types? Beats me!
