Does anyone know of any bagpipe albums I could buy? Not massed pipes (i.e. lots of pipes, sometimes up to 100), but 2 or 3. I really like the Triumph Street Band, from Canada, but I don't think they have any albums. But that's the kind of thing I'm looking for. They have a "pure, clear sound" (as a reviewer put it) that I like.

  • In the Breton tradition the combo of Bombard and Biniou Koz is found, and there are albums of duos playing these. Strictly speaking only the Biniou Koz is a bagpipe (chanter), but the sound of both is "bagpipish". Leaving this as a comment - you can follow lists of names in the Bombard article to investigate further. – Angst Aug 13 '20 at 20:13

  • Note, if something else is desired: bagpipe is an instrument with widely varying names, such as Musette, Dudelsack/Sackpfeife and Zampogna. – guidot Aug 12 '20 at 14:04

If one bagpiper is enough you could listen to Christina Pato (she plays Galician pipes). She recorded at least one album ("Latina"), but there's also plenty of her music on YouTube, for example:
