A Pig of Dumfries


A Pig of Dumfries - Tom Hughes In early 2018 I moved from Cheshire to Dumfries in south west Scotland. One of the first things I did was to try to find references to bagpipes in the town. I work in the museum but we had very little piping relating material there. However, I found historical records of medieval pipers entertaining King James V on his visits to the town and mentions of various border pipers with bellows blown pipes, including a visit of the Wandering Piper who I have written about in Chanter a couple of times.

We are settling into our new website, including making available articles from our thirty year history. If you spot something inaccurate, garbled or missing, or if you want to volunteer to help us improve our site, please mail info@bagpipesociety.
