Synopsis:

Written for all piping enthusiasts, this book covers piping traditions of Scotland?s Inner Isles, from Arran to Raasay, excluding Skye. Aiming to pass on the piping lore that used to be handed down with the music to piping pupils, this account takes a wide sweep of the pipers, places, and piping stories of the islands. From the background of all the tunes prescribed for area piping competitions to discussion of the preeminent schools, the book also contains entertaining anecdotes about players, making this an essential read on the history and modern culture of piping in Scotland.

About the Author: Bridget Mackenzie is a former lecturer in Old Norse at the University of Glasgow and the recipient of a Saltire Society Award for her contribution to the understanding of Highland culture.
