Image: The Book of the Bagpipe, by Hugh Cheape (Author). Publisher: McGraw-Hill; 1 edition (September 1, 2000)Bagpipe Appreciation Day
-- This is a day to celebrate and appreciate the storied history of an ancient musical device, the noble Highlands Scottish Bagpipe. Some view bagpipes as obnoxious, migraine inducing tools of destruction; the medieval equivalent of leaf blowers and car horns. But for true, full blooded aficionados the great booming drones and shrill piercing beauty of such a mad device is epic.

Read: The Book of the Bagpipe, by Hugh Cheape
-- The Book of the Bagpipe relates the evolution of the bagpipe from the reeded pipes of ancient civilizations to its present-day position as a Scottish cultural icon, an evocative emblem of Celtic heritage, and a legitimate musical instrument. Delightfully illustrated with photographs, engravings, and color paintings of pipes and pipers through the ages, this book makes an ideal gift for anyone with an interest in Celtic music and history.

His father played the bagpipes, and so did his grandfather, his great-grandfather and their grandfathers before them, all the way back to the day the beloved musical instrument first arrived in Scotland. He has played his pipes for weddings, marches, wrestling matches and haggis-eating contests (He has also played them at chess tournaments and libraries, but for some reason, his enthusiastic performances didn't go over so well then). Other musical styles may come and go, but the Bagpiper knows in his heart that the bagpipes will last forever!

Kids Miniature Playable Bagpipe -- Best way for young pipers to start learning and to own their first set of pipes! Can be used as a decorative piece on your wall or mantlepiece. A Great gift to spark your child's interest for bagpipes. Fantastic souvenir to promote Scottish and Irish heritage
