Below is a selection of recordings for anybody who is not a member of the Piobaireachd Society.   Non members have access to information about and sources of all the tunes on the site,  but can only hear recordings from the list below.   HERE is the full list of tunes on the site.

 

Some of these recordings are over 40 years old and some work has been done to restore them without infringing on their  original sound, however the quality varies in each case.

Acknowledgments: All artists, BBC Radio Scotland,  The College of Piping,  Mr. John Frater, Mrs Jeannie Wheater. Mr. Murray Henderson, Mr Iain Speirs, Mr. Walter Drysdale. We are also indebted to Andrew Wright for giving us access to his personal library of recordings and to all the players, to Dugald MacNeill for allowing historical information from Binneas is Boreraig, and to the family of Robert Reid for allowing publication of the Robert Reid tape archive.
