A history of bagpipe music
It was the 1950s, and the band that would become Bagpipers had just released a hit single, “The Way We Are.”
A group of students and musicians were looking for a catchy tune to play during their break.
That was when they decided to go back to basics, and they ended up with this song, which is known as “The Bagpipe Song.”
Bagpipes had always had a reputation for playing music in the dark, but the song has a dark and haunting quality that makes it stand out.
It was recorded in 1957 by two British Bagpipe players and included the lyrics, “A dark, haunted sound.”
The song went on to be an unofficial anthem for Bagpiper fans.
It has been played on bagpipes for years, and is still performed by some of the biggest bands in the world.
The song has been a part of the canon of Bagpiping music for decades.
The band’s first album was released in 1959, but it only became a hit in 1965, and its second was released four years later.
In 2018, Bagpickers released the soundtrack to the movie The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey.
A year later, they were also the subject of a documentary called The Bagpipe Chronicles.
In 2017, the group was inducted into the International Bagpipe Hall of Fame.
The Bagpiphones are now based in New York City.
