1 Gibson, John G. Old and New World Highland Bagpiping.
Birlinn, 2005. 1841583340 2005 1841583340 / 9781841583341 Soft cover Fine Book 
Paperback in fine condition, 2nd impression. Ppxiii, 424. With b&w photographs and illustrations, with charts, notes, bibliography and index. S4.Old and New World Highland Bagpiping is a stimulating and controversial book which also provides a comprehensive biographical and genealogical account of pipers and piping in both Highland Scotland and Gaelic Cape Breton. The result of over thirty years' oral fieldwork among the last of the Gaels in Cape Breton, as well as an exhaustive synthesis of Scottish archival sources, this book shows that traditional community bagpiping in the Old and New World Gaidhealtachdan was, and for a long time remained, the same. John Gibson explores the distortions introduced by the tendency to interpret the written record from the perspective of modern, post-eighteenth-century bagpiping. 
Price: 12.00 GBP
