Piping Traditions of the Isle of Skye Paperback / softback
There is so much material on piping in Skye that it merits a book of its own.
Written for all piping enthusiasts, this is not an academic study but instead aims to pass on the piping lore that used to be handed down with the music to piping pupils, but is no longer.
Written in a light and readable style, the book takes a wide sweep of the pipers, places and piping stories of the island, including notes on the background of all the tunes prescribed for the Skye competitions, discussion of the MacCrimmon and MacArthur schools, even Simon Fraser's MacCrimmon traditions preserved in Australia, and entertaining anecdotes about a host of Skye players.
