Well I grew up mostly in England so yes I do.
Even though they are Scottish, it was common to hear and see in England.
They are a weird instrument I will give them that!
I enjoy listening to the bagpipes. I wouldn't mind learning how to play them either, but I won't try...I'd probably sound like an animal dying...

I love them and listen to them whenever I can. I also attend local tatoos and when in Edinburgh I saw that as well. I used to learn Scottish and Irish dancing when I was young but mum made me give it up when I came home and said I wanted to learn to play the bagpipes. We had a piper living a few streets away from us and I loved hearing the sound carried from his street to ours every weekend when I was growing up.
Occasionally if it is part of a song, or if other musical instruments are involved. However, if it is JUST bagpipe music then no, not really. I probably wouldn't enjoy the Edinburgh Tattoo then. We have someone playing the bagpipes at our cenotaph for Anzac Day and it is hauntingly beautiful, but I couldn't spend an hour or two just listening to bagpipes being played.
Yes, sometimes. I quite enjoy the Edinburgh Military Tattoo, and some world music that has a bit of bagpipes in.
Bagpipes aren't used in any form the music in my country's culture, so for me it's a novelty.
I met an old Scottish gentleman who played them for me. It was quite nice. He had a very interesting story of learning how to play. He basically said that they saved him from a life of being a hoodlum. I cant remember all the details but he was tearing up telling the story.

No. They're annoying and give me headaches.
Once in a 'blue moon'!

Certainly not one of my favourite musical instruments to listen to!

Having said that, I'll go see a TATTOO, if I can, & watch the televised Edinburgh one, without fail!

My Father was in the RAAF, & loved going to them, so I started attending with him when I was 5, & grew to enjoy them as much as Dad did!
LOVE them!! Soul stirring stuff. Can't hear Amazing Grace without a tear in my eye. Scotland the Brave is another gem. I have a CD of The Royal Scots Dragoon Guards. I'm not Scottish but I agree with jonaj, we're English and we grew up hearing them routinely.

Love them , they stir my blood up and have my feet marching and always love to dance the jig which I learnt as a child. Made me visit Scotland to see the Tatoo.
Yes I can listen to them on Anzac Day or at the Edinburgh Tattoo, (on tv) but that's about it. It looks like a very different instrument to play.

I love bagpipes! My family is originally from Scotland so they make me quite nostalgic.
What can I say - I'm Scottish through and through. Love hearing the "lone piper" on the battlements at the end of the Edinburgh Military Tattoo.Very stirring to an ex-pat like me, especially when the piper plays "Flower of Scotland".
Oh yes. They awaken something in me. Bagpipes played well are magnificent. Maybe it is my Scottish ancestory stirring.
...and then of course there are the kilts!

You bet you, to the point where I am now 67 years old and learning to play them.
lmars, that's so great. I've got the biggest grin on my face right now. Go you!

Fair enough.
