GaitaMakerTV© | Spreading the Word About Bagpipes

We make use of this blog, of our YouTube® Channel, our Facebook® page and Twitter®, to spread the word, and together with your help make a better piping world for all.

Supported by you – the vibrant piping community – but also by friends and partner institutions, we use the english language as a vehicle to spread our cause. We aim to show Gaitas to people that have never heard of such a thing, far far away on the other side of the globe.

Here you will find all about “All Things Gaita”.

Stay tuned to EVERYTHING GaitaMaker® does – Interviews, event coverage, Short tutorials, Interviews and RoundTables, and also the writing of our bloggers.

A media outlet to promote and develop the Iberian Gaita piping cause.
