An anthology of international bagpipe music, featuring some of California's finest Pipers who have brought their musical heritage to our community.  Several of the pipers actively involve either part or all of their families in a rather remarkable achievement of passing age-old traditions on to the next generation despite the influences of the high-tech urban society all around them.

Includes music related to Christmas and New Year celebrations.
