The Sound of The Bagpipes

If you have ever heard them they offer a sound that is unforgettable. I love to hear the bagpipes as they are played but some that I know do not care so much for them. Bagpipes are woodwind instrument that uses enclosed reeds fed from a constant reservoir of air in the form of a bag. The Scottish Great Highland bagpipes have been played for more than a millennium. Large parts of Europe, northern Africa, and Western Asia have heard the sound of bagpipes for quite sometime.

Bagpipes are thought to have been present during pre-Roman era. Thru the years the bagpipes have continued to bring beautiful music. The expansion of the British Empire including the Highland regiments in the British military have been known to play the bagpipe. Bagpipers were trained to go to battle during the World War I and World War II. Today, many police and fire services in Scotland, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Hong Kong, and the United States have adopted tradition of playing bagpipes.
