Bagpipes: A National Collection of a National Instrument



Professor Hugh Cheape uses the Museums’ collection of over 1800 instruments to tell the story of the ‘great pipe’, from the European bagpipe tradition to Scottish icon, including the remarkable influence of the Baroque on Scotland’s musical traditions.

Professor Hugh Cheape was Head of the Scottish Material Culture Research Centre at National Museums Scotland, and was largely responsible for building the Museums’ definitive bagpipe collection. He is now a Lecturer and Course Leader at the University of the Highlands and Islands. This title was published for National Museums Scotland by NMS Enterprises Limited – Publishing © 2013.
