About this title


This book is aimed at people outside the piping community who want to find out more about this magnificent instrument without too much expenditure of time and money. It is a lively introductory guide to what pipers do and why, showing how "tradition," often thought of as a vague and anonymous process, is in fact created by a whole succession of brilliantly gifted individual teachers, players, and composers. The author uses many historical sources to explore the rich heritage of piping, an activity strongly rooted in Scotland's past. Pipers also focuses on the individual players themselves, with a wide range of interviews and anecdotes to provide a fresh account of this key musical cohort.

About the Author:

William Donaldson is a Scottish social historian and piper, and the author of several books.
