Scottish Bagpipe Music

 

The Highland Pipes are a fascinating instrument.

The Roman Emperor Nero was thought to have played a version of bagpipes known as tibia utricularis.

Bagpipe music is played on the Great Highland Bagpipe, an instrument that has reeds, drones, chanter, bag and mouth piece.

The bagpipe chanter has 9 notes and is played with a blend of embellishments that create musical sounds.

The low A note on the modern bagpipe chanter is commonly tuned to 468 - 480 Hz. The pitch has raised over the years due to preference of sound. It just sounds better and brighter in the context of this unique instrument. If it is to be played with an orchestra a special concert pitched chanter is required.

From slow airs to foot stamping marches, jigs, hornpipes and reels. A whole mixture of music is at hand for your own entertainment needs.

Bagpipe music falls into two forms, (Ceol Beag) meaning light music in Gaelic, this is what you most commonly hear, such tunes as "Scotland the Brave" are considered as light music.

Piobaireachd is the classical music of the bagpipe, this music was made for the instrument. It is known as (Ceol Mhor) meaning big music in Gaelic.
Bagpipe music encompasses hundreds of years of history all rolled into the performance at any one meeting. The impression the bagpipes make is very special, it is impossible to put your finger on its magical, mystical qualities. This is a true art form.

Pipe music is incredible, it is moving, it is exciting, it is happy, it is sad, it drills deep into your soul.

Above all you will not regret the performance of a Scottish Piper at your event.

Hire Piper Mckay for your event.

No event is too small!
