Anatomy of a Pipe Band

Click on the icons on the big photo, below.

Full disclosure: I’ve played drums in several area bagpipe bands for over a dozen years, so it’s probably no accident that our first interactive photo app is all about the old wheeze and squeeze—the Philadelphia Emerald Society Pipe Band, in particular.

Anyway, we found a neat new tool for making our images (we have thousands) a lot more fun than they already are, and we just had to give it a go.

It’ also the time of year where you’re likely to see pipe bands more often—in parades, of course, but also at area Highland games. This new app will answer most of the questions you might have about the instruments, uniforms, and history. It’ll also tell you where to see pipers this summer.

Look for more of these fun interactive pics in weeks to come.
