A Pig of DumfriesBy:
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.
