Seumas' Citadel

An amazing resource of recordings from great bagpipers! From Seumas Coyne's website:

For centuries, the Coyne family has searched for, collected, categorized, and maintained culturally and musically significant artifacts of the greatest pipers in bagpiping history. Until now, access to these artifacts--painstakingly converted over the years to both audio and video files--was only granted to a select group of scholars and pipe majors.
