Bagpipes Galore Episode 3

This episode, we will travel North to where light is scarce in winter and abundant in summer: Sweden. A musician and a saw-mill worker set to revive its small bagpipes in the 80s. These are known as the säckpipa. Sweden has a long history with bagpipes, and the sound of them, sweet and mellow is enough to convince anybody that they are also possible to play indoors. Come and discover the Swedish music of the long winter nights…
