Instrument: Bagpipes by Lauren

Updated: Oct 18, 2018

Bagpipes have several pipes including the air supply blowpipe, the bag, the chanter, and the chanter reed and the drone or drones. The chanter is the melody pipe which can be played by the piper, while the drone or drones provide a constant note. Some historians believe that bagpipes originate from ancient Egypt but brought over to Scotland by invading Roman legions. Others maintain that the instrument was brought over the water by the colonising scots tribes from Ireland. People who play the bagpipes are called bagpipers.

Bagpipes date back to almost 1000 BCE!
