"He took up the uilleann pipes, basically the Irish version of Scottish bag pipes."

Reminds me of the time someone was intently watching an uilleann piper play, after which came the question: "But where do you plug it in?"

It's just another manifestation of the prevalent ignorant equation of bagpipes with the GHB... 'he plays uilleann pipes'... 'no, but I'm talking about the bagpipes!'

Just shows people's ignorance and how good a job the Scots have done in promoting just one of the more than 200 different types of Bagpipes that have existed.

At one time, perhaps not that long ago, many people in Europe associated the Italians with 'Bagpipes' as the itinerant pipers would rove about during the winter festivals playing at fairs and such in various countries.

There are about 10 different French bagpipes, most if not all are currently played.

For the sake of argument... would you guys provide an equally succinct sentance that could have been used instead?

(I try to have the habit to not complain unless I can offer a better solution, and that is what I am hoping to elicit.)

So the parameters for a better suggestion should consider (1) audience and (2) available space. So based on rgouette’s profile, we should assume it is (1) Americans from Maine and (2) my assumption is that there is very little space is available for the remark.

Show me what you can do. 8)

Well at least as I have seen the did not call them Scotch (hic) Pipes as have seen in print and the statement may actually be right if you take "Scottish" pipes to include the "Pastoral or New Bagpipe" sometimes known as the "Scottish Hybrid Union Pipe" courtesy of one W A Cocks

Lets see, Biniou Koz and Bras/Nouveau), Boha, Bodego/Craba, Cabrette, Chabrette, Cornemuse du Centre and all its variations e.g. Musette Bechonnet, Cornemuse of the Haut Loire, Baroque Musette (du Cour), Musette Gailard, Sac de Gemecs, Veuze …. yes at least 10 Geoff and many more coming out the woodwork such the Cornemuse from Picardy, Cornemuse de Poitiou and of course a number of makers in France both native and expat now producing the Uilleann pipes - should these be renamed the French Uilleann Pipes? :devil:

Excellent idea :D

For anyone who can then "Le Son Continu" (The relocated old St Chartier) music festival is well worth visiting - http://www.lesoncontinu.fr/ with around 140 makers of mostly drone instruments showing their instruments in a woodland setting in the grounds of the Chateau d'Ars and also the Musee at Montlucon which has a good number of different bagpipes on show.... even the rare Scottish Highland Bagpipe

In addition to the astute observations put forth thus far, I offer up this
rare photo of the only bagpipe native and indigenous to the USA:
