Bruce Gandy recorded a couple jigs for Seumas' Citadel, a collection of categorized and maintained culturally and musically significant artifacts of the greatest pipers in bagpiping history. Find out more about this great resource at https://seumascoyne.com/seumas-citadel.
From its origin in Scottish clans and culture, the Great Highland Bagpipe has long been associated with the military.
Especially in more recent history, the Highland Regiments of the British Armed Forces, and some of the Lowland Regiments as well, have had bagpipers since their first formation.
The United States Armed Forces has historically had a very close relationship with the British – so the spread of the bagpipes was inevitable.
