I seriously can't stand bagpipes as all I can hear is the equivalent of cats giving it all that late at night when everyone is trying to sleep... However on this ocassion I'm prepared to give them the benefit of the doubt - bagpipes that is...

@jackietheripper @MadameZia If you don't care for the Scottish bagpipes try my favourite piper who is from Northumberland (nearly Scotland. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HiuMwskhsGk

I didn't like bagpipes until I worked with a guy who played them and I went to his shows/parades for support and they grew on me. I tried to play his set once...my attempt truly did sound like a dying cat.

Only saw bagpipes while living in Melbourne... always by one of the bridges, the guy even danced! Aparently, turned into a trend http://youtu.be/Tsnk-TyU3Q4

Bagpipes are war pipes -- they are meant to be load and screechy and sound the charge. Uileann pipes are the "sit down and make beautiful music" pipes.

@paulgdaly yeah it is true that pipes and going to war are inextricably linked but the other side of that is that a lot of Scottish bagpipe music is quite sad - laments - flowers of the forest being maybe the most famous.

@jackietheripper Well I did listen to most of it - but I'm afraid I'm with @MadameZia and @SheRa - I can't cope with prelonged bagpipes either - I loved your youtube link though! @Axol I liked your links too : D
