Why Did A Bagpipe Sing A Christmas Song At The 2016 Grammy Awards?
The 2018 Grammy Awards saw the arrival of some new music from an obscure New England band.
The bagpipe band Bagpiper, who started as a single-person band in 1998, made its debut at the awards with a catchy tune from their 2006 debut, “A Bagpipe in the Rain.”
Their latest release, 2017’s “A Christmas Bagpipe,” is a song that sounds like a Christmas-themed bagpipe.
The band’s music is often about a Christmas tree, but they also dabble in other types of music.
They’ve played on the music charts and the radio, and recently released their own album, “The Bagpipers Christmas Album.”
Here’s what you need to know about the band, its music, and what it means to be a New England bagpipe fan.
