Piped music

A casual visitor to Edinburgh, wandering through the city on a Sunday morning, might come to the conclusion that every citizen of Edinburgh had a civic duty to stand on a street corner wearing tartan and playing the bagpipes. Fortunately, by the afternoon the constant serenading had stopped and the city was once again allowed to hear its thoughts.

Bagpipes do have a place. It's on the battlefield, at a military tattoo, or, if they're being practiced, a remote corner of the Scottish Highlands. and absolutely nowhere else.
