More Highland Bagpipe Makers - a supplementary volume to the second edition
The second edition of Highland Bagpipe Makers was published in 2011 but since then additional records have become available so several more makers have been discovered and additional information has been found on makers who were included previously.
This new volume does not repeat any of the information which has already appeared in the second edition. Consequently, the additional material on makers already covered should be read in conjunction with the second edition otherwise it will seem disjointed and confused.
Jeannie Campbell’s long-anticipated history of pipe bands has now been published. The book, Pipe Bands, which took the leading piping historian five years to compile,
Jeannie, who was for many years the curator of The Bagpipe Museum at the College of Piping, told Bagpipe.News: “There is very little available on the history of bands so if anyone wants to know about pipe band competitions, who the winning bands were, and how the rules, methods of judging and playing requirements have changed over the last century and a quarter then the information is all here.
“The earliest bands in other countries have been noted, too, and while it would be impossible to include every band in the world I have included the histories of famous bands and some others which are not well known but their stories serve to illustrate how bands are formed and develop.
These books are a must-have for people interested in bagpipes, pipe bands and bagpipe makers history!
