Bagpipes Video Series: Bagpipes: The Feared Instrument?

Brandon Hughes talks about the historical role of highland bagpipes as an instrument of war. There's no getting around the fact that this is a very loud instrument! Time: 2:53.

This is one of a series of videos offering a behind-the-scenes look at the October 2011 recording session with The 42nd Royal Highlanders. Their bagpipes, fifes, and drums were featured in John Riggio's song "Emerald Isle" (Music K-8, Vol. 22, No. 4).
