9781906566555: Piping Traditions of the Isle of Skye

Written for all piping enthusiasts, this book covers piping traditions in the Isle of Skye, Scotland. 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 island. From the background of all the tunes prescribed for the Skye competitions to discussion of the MacCrimmon and MacArthur schools, it contains entertaining anecdotes about a host of Skye players. This is essential reading for any piper who wants to know about the home of piping.

This book usually ship within 10-15 business days and we will endeavor to dispatch orders quicker than this where possible. Brand New Book. There is so much material on piping in Skye that it merits a book of its own.

Written in a light and readable style, the book takes a wide sweep of the pipers, places and piping stories of the island, including notes on the background of all the tunes prescribed for the Skye competitions, discussion of the MacCrimmon and MacArthur schools, even Simon Fraser s MacCrimmon traditions preserved in Australia, and entertaining anecdotes about a host of Skye players.
