Yup - I wonder why that is? Do you think it's because the bagpipes are native to us Scots, or just that the sound of them is haunting?
I think it's the sound of them, Elly. It isn't unusual to see a lone piper playing at funerals anywhere in the UK which are reported on TV.
On the other hand though the pipes can be very uplifting. Hearing "Scotland the Brave" played on them really stirs my Scot's blood.
There are so many - but here's a long time favourite. Reminds me of people who are out of my life now, one way or another. Videos not so hot, but you can just shut your eyes.
That's really emotional too fiverings, and I agree that there is something nostalgic about it. Thanks for posting.
