Piob Mhór

Peter Henderson Scottish

On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 684

Peter Henderson’s workshop was a celebrated maker of Highland bagpipes during the twentieth century and a gathering place for noted pipers. The Highland bagpipes tradition draws upon the instrument’s long history in the hands of both military musicians and traveling minstrels. The expansion of the British empire ensured the global spread of this icon of Scots identity and music.
