    The bagpipe is a folk instrument, but has also inspired a classical tradition, the Highland pibroch. Cannon traces the pipes' history from their medieval origins to the massed bands and competitions of today. His account is interspersed with a selection of tunes illustrating features of the different traditions and music for dancing, battle, lament and entertainment. This second edition includes an updated bibliography and a new preface highlighting recent developments.
