Highland Bagpiper Paul Hinson Plays in Champaign


“The pipes,” “a set of pipes,” “a stand of pipes”—all refer to the bagpipe, which exists in many forms. Without doubt the most commonly called to mind is the Great Highland bagpipe native to Scotland since around the 15th century. While best known for its role in pipe bands, the Highland pipe can also be a solo instrument and, as such, will be played by Paul Hinson at a noon-time concert in Champaign on Friday. I’ll talk with Paul on the Thursday edition of “Live and Local.”
