Playing the Pipes

Playing the Pipes – Nova Scotia, Halifax and Peggy’s Cove have quite a history and heritage. The native inhabitants were a tribe known as the Mi’kmaq. You can see much of their heritage through the land, but Nova Scotia was very heavily settled by the Scots around 1960. You can certainly see their influence in much of the peninsula. One of the things common to each site we stopped at was the Scot musicians – bagpipes, fiddles and piano. This Celtic music is very lively and certainly has a strong Scot sound to it. We enjoyed this bagpiper that was playing at the lighthouse.
