== About this Wiki ==
This site aims to be an open on-line encyclopedia of [[Ceol Mòr]], collecting informationabout about each piece, sources, composers and performers. This wiki is an experimental work in progress. It is far from complete. The purpose of thiswiki is several-fold.Firstly to present sources of pipe music, or piobaireachd as an integrated living traditionwith primary sources along side of discussion, performance as well as newer secondarysources. Secondly the goal is to make the information about musical pieces, composers,performers, artefacts and books available in a structured, ''machine-readable'' or indeed''data-driven'' way.
