Tartan, the Highland habit by Hugh Cheape( Book )

20 editions published between 1991 and 2006 in English and held by 282 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Hugh Cheape, Head of the Scottish Material Culture Research Centre at the National Museums of Scotland, explores the story of tartan from the medieval love of display to the Victorian invention of exclusive clan identity. With the spotlight also thrown on Bonnie Prince Charlie's kilt and 'ancient' tartans, the history of the Highlands and its society is brought vividly to life. A revised edition of a classic text, this book contains a full-colour section on clan tartans, with useful historical information to find our more about your own tartan, and family history and genealogy."--BOOK JACKET
The book of the bagpipe by Hugh Cheape( Book )

8 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and held by 271 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The bagpipe is a versatile instrument, able to reflect a broad range of moods, thoughts, and purposes. Over the centuries, it has similarly evoked a range of contradictory reactions. During post-Reformation censorship it was denounced as the devil's instrument, but it became the instrument of the French aristocracy under Louis XIV and Louis XV. Even in Scotland, the late sixteenth-century bard Niall Mor MacMhuirich described it as "an overblown pig's bladder"; yet this view was evidently not widely shared, for the bagpipe overtook the harp in popularity as the musical instrument of Gaelic society and remains indelibly associated with the culture of the Celtic countries to this day."--Jacket

A very civil people : Hebridean folk, history, and tradition by John Lorne Campbell( Book )

6 editions published between 1999 and 2014 in English and held by 97 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Working from within the tradition, with a sound knowledge of the language, its evolution and cultural milieu, Campbell saw himself as 'setting the record straight' on Highland and Hebridean history. Here he writes authoritatively on the history, language and literature, oral narrative and tradition, poetry and song of the Hebrides, but his methodology, interpretations and conclusions offer lessons for the wider study of Highland, Scottish and British history."--Jacket
Bagpipes : a national collection of a national treasure by Hugh Cheape( Book )

6 editions published between 2007 and 2011 in English and held by 90 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Based on a 'national collection of the national instrument' now assembled in National Museums Scotland, this book offers an account of the musicology of the bagpipe in its European context, including the remarkable influence of the Baroque on Scotland's musical traditions."--BOOK JACKET
Witness to rebellion : John Maclean's journal of the 'Forty-Five and the Penicuik drawings by John Maclean( Book )

3 editions published between 1996 and 2010 in English and held by 83 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Published to coincide with the 250th anniversary of the Battle of Culloden which ended the Stuart dynasty's final attempt to reclaim the British throne, this book presents for the first time two important new primary sources of evidence - one verbal and one visual." "The Journal of John Maclean is the first-hand account of the experiences of an officer of Prince Charles Edward's army from August 1745, through Prestonpans and the taking of Edinburgh, the march into England to Derby, the withdrawal to Scotland and the final retreat to Drummossie Moor near Inverness, where the author was killed in the Battle of Culloden." "A remarkable series of newly discovered drawings from the Clerk Collection at Penicuik House offers a unique view of the participants on both sides of the 'Forty-Five: a Rising for some, for others a Rebellion. No other comparable collection of images is known. This sketches were made in part as a factual record, but more so as an exercise in caricature, perhaps as a diversion from the very real dangers and disasters of the time. The Result is an insight on the 'Forty-Five that is both telling and humorous." "Maclean's Journal is accompanied by an introduction and commentary; and a selection from the Penicuik drawings appears with a discursive essay which sets the new visual evidence in the context of the society and attitudes which produced these whimsical images of Highlanders and Hanoverians."--Jacket

The Bagpipe : perceptions of a national instrument by Hugh Cheape( Book )

2 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The thesis, The Bagpipe: perceptions of a national instrument, is a work offered to the University of Edinburgh for the degree of PhD by research publications, and includes a portfolio of published items and research papers, amounting in total to approximately 63,600 words, with a critical review and a CD. Research papers: 1. 'Making a national collection of a national instrument.' Lecture to the American Musical Instrument Society and Galpin Society Conference, 3-9 August 2003. 2. 'The Early History of the Scottish Bagpipe', in Ellen Hickmann, Arnd Adje Both and Ricardo Eichmann eds., Studien zur Musikarchäologie V (Papers from the 4th Symposium of the International Study Group on Music Archaeology, 19-26 September 2004) Rahden/Westf.: VML 2006, 447-461. 3. 'Musician and Milieu: piping, politics and patronage through three centuries.' The John Macfadyen Memorial Trust Annual Lecture, 19 March 2004. 4. 'Traditional origins of the piping dynasties.' RSAMD Research Seminar 31 May 2007 (publication forthcoming). 5. 'The Pastoral or New Bagpipe: piping in the Neo-baroque', in The Galpin Society Journal, 2007-2008 (forthcoming). 6. 'Taste and Humour: the Union Pipe of Britain and Ireland', in Seán Reid Society Journal Volume 3 (2007) [electronic format]. 7. 'Donald MacDonald, Bagpipe Maker', in Proceedings of the Piobaireachd Society Conference Volume XXXIII (2006), 10-18. These papers are discussed in a critical review whose thesis and structure is explained in the Prospectus. The critical review amounts to approximately 24,200 words and is divided into seven Sections (as listed on the Contents page) which relate specifically to their respective research papers and summarise their findings. There is some imbalance of wording between the Sections, for example there are more words in sections 'Piping Dynasties' and 'the Maestros', and this reflects a perceived need to strengthen the statements in these areas in order to deliver the arguments of the thesis more effectively
