A new resource for curious minds


Images to follow Coinciding with the publication of this edition of Chanter is the launch of a fascinating new online dictionary and encyclopeadia of bagpipes. It really is a tour de force especially considering that it is the work of just one man, Wiebe Stodel. The full title is an “Encyclopaedic dictionary of international termingology of Bagpipes and related instruments”. Subtitled, ‘an organological-linguistic study, provided with several appendices’, it consists of over 8000 entries and studies of instruments and terminologies in over 120 languages and dialects.

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.
