When Piping was Strong is an unprecedented history of Gaelic Scotland's most resilient of musical treasures: the piping traditions of the Outer Hebrides.

Based on documented history and the insights of local performers looking back on a lifetime of music making, Joshua Dickson examines the role of piping and pipers in Hebridean life and how it has changed over the course of time.

By considering the context of old Clanranald patronage, ceilidh customs and 'improved' notions of transmission and performance in the piping world, a picture emerges of a dynamic musical tradition which has adapted and survived through centuries of sweeping social change.
