Archie McNeill—The Blind Piper

David Lairson
One of the best known books used when learning to play the bagpipes is The College of Piping Tutor 1. This book was written by Seumas McNeill and Thomas Pearston. Both men learned to play the bagpipes from Archie McNeill, the blind piper. His teaching methods became the basis of the tutor. Who was Archie McNeill and why was he called the blind piper?
