I know bagpipes are very common in Ireland and Scotland.  Are they played frequently in England and Wales?

    There are even different sorts of bagpiped, of which the Northumberland bagpipes ("listener-friendly bagpipes" as one comedian called them!) are possibly the best known.

    In many parts of Europe there are or have been bagpipes of various sorts, with local traditions of styles of playing them.

    I know bagpipes are very common in Ireland and Scotland? Then you don't know very much......... I have only ever seen them played at occassional events, so not common at all

    Yes, In my Cornish town a gentleman in full dress plays them in the castle grounds each thursday in the summer.

    Unless anyone on here is in every area of England how can they say No.?
