dc.description.abstract The Great Highland Bagpipe is one of the most emotionally evocative instruments in the world, providing people with reactions ranging from awe, grief, courage, pride, and occasionally immense irritation. The Great Highland Bagpipe and its music have a rich history that is hardly known in American culture. Piobaireachd is a complex and ancient musical form that is central to this bagpipe's culture, development, and heritage. The importance of piobaireachd cannot be understated; in many ways it secured the survival of the Great Highland Bagpipe to today. This thesis explains the history and construction of world bagpipes, the musical structure of piobaireachd, canntaireachd and celtic oral tradition, and the history of piobaireachd itself. Together these subjects portray a comprehensive study of how piobaireachd has become the music it is today. en_US
