Thread Name: Recent Article on Lowland Bagpipes
Subject: RE: Recent Article on Lowland Bagpipes
I found the article interesting, and I enjoyed seeing the old cartoons. However, the author seems to assume that I would know the differences between the small pipes and the Highland pipes, and I don't.

I did a little checking, but couldn't learn enough in a reasonable time to follow the author's logic.

I have no trouble believing that it was wealthy people, with large homes and plenty of land, who were the first enthusiasts of the Highland pipes.   

Thanks for the link.
