Now, Doug, THAT is a bagpipe! The shoes do look eastern European, but that would be of the last 50+ years – but perhaps everybody (every musician?!) wore such shoes at the time. Fun!
Doug, can you tell me about the origin of this photo? Are they gypsies from eastern Europe? Thanks.
I can’t remember where I found the photograph but the instrument is an Italian bagpipe called the zampogna. I’m assuming the people in the photograph are from somewhere in Italy but dont really know. Here is some more information you might find interesting.
All the best,
