PIPE BAND COMPETITION

 

Bagpipes (the “pipes”) are inextricably tied to Scotland’s historical foes, the Romans and the Sassenachs -- primarily the English. Bagpipes have ancient roots and can be traced back to various regions, including the Middle East, North Africa and Europe.

 

Some historians believed that the pipes were used in Scotland as early as 100 AD, popular by 1000 AD and by 1500 AD every major clan chieftain had a piper in his retinue! 

 

The modern Great Highland Bagpipe is perhaps the most well-known type and was developed in the Scottish Highlands.
