For bagpipe players, today is their day

ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – You can’t have St. Patrick’s Day without the bagpipes! If you wander into any Irish-themed restaurant Monday, you may hear this kind of music.

Mac-Tire of Skye Pipes and Drums will be out and about this holiday, and drum major Tara O’Mahony sits down with Elizabeth Alvarez to explain how bagpipes work, their history and their significance on St. Patrick’s Day.
