A bagpiper is not made on the instrument alone. A well rounded piper is also well read on the history, lore, and musicology of their chosen art. Here is a list of books on bagpipe history, bagpipe music, and playing music that should be on all bagpipers’ reading lists. Many are volumes that can be read in parts as the mood strikes, others might be something you would want to digest in a single go. Enjoy.
