Hale the Piper (cont...) and other Peak Pipers


Long standing BagSoc members may remember that 7 years ago I wrote an article for Chanter about Eric’s and my discovery of the portrait of Hale the Piper. For those unfamiliar with either Hale or the story, I will give a little background information. The full article, if you’re interested, is available on the website here: http://bit.ly/Chanter111. Hale the Piper is well known amongst fans of early English bagpiping as well as lovers of 3/2 hornpipes.

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.
