Unknown # 21 The Chief's Bagpipe
The "Chief" is my father. He came into possession of this bagpipe many years ago along with a breech-loading Enfield rifle. The bagpipe was said to have been played during the Indian Mutiny of 1857. I don't know whether or not this is true, however it just may be. It's made of ebony and the sound is bold and majestic. It has a presence all of its own. I was playing with Clan MacFarlane when he first got it. I put the drones into my stocks and was not at all prepared for what I heard (and felt). Amazing.
