We have each other’s backs, and we suddenly feel more supported. It’s beautiful when we can all come together in unison to spread the love.

Back in 2018, a thousand pipers came together to salute the Chieftain. Thankfully, video was captured of the moment and we can actually see the hundreds of pipers together in a field.

It’s a beautiful, magical moment — even if you aren’t Scottish.

The way the bagpipes sound, when a thousand of them are being played together in an open field, is unlike anything else we have ever heard before.

Although several bagpipes are playing at once, it almost sounds like one massive instrument as they reverberate throughout the big, open field.

This moment took place at the World Pipe Band Championships of 2018.

“At the end of a long day competing and socializing the massed pipe bands gather for the results and salute The Chieftain of the Day with Hielan’ Laddie,” the Youtube user who uploaded the video explained in the description.

To see these people take such pride in their instruments and in their land is so inspiring and special.

You can feel the passion in the music as they play. Sure, it’s loud, but it almost feels meditative in a really nice way!

“I’m not even remotely Scottish, but this gave me a true chill,” one user wrote in a comment on the video.

“Bagpipes are just about the only instrument that sounds better in an open field, rather then in an acoustics room. And a recording simply can’t convey the true sound they produce, nor the feeling in your chest as 30 pipes ring through you,” another person wrote.

And that person is so right — bagpipes are underrated. They are such a cool instrument that, when combined with others, makes for a really magical moment. You can totally feel them ring through you.

“Can’t even imagine how this must sound ringing through the land,” another person wrote.

People are even tuning in and watching this video all the way from America, sharing just how special it is to them:

“I don’t know why every time I listen to bagpipes always get a tear in my eye. Much love from America,” someone wrote.

You can’t deny that there is something ancient about this kind of music. You can hear that it’s been around for ages, just in the way that it echoes throughout the land. There’s a certain sense of history there, which makes it all the more special!

“Do you hear how clear the sound/tones are?” Another person commented. “That means they are playing complete synchron!”

Well, who would’ve thought?! Their playing is extremely impressive, to say the least, so we believe that they are playing together in perfect unison.
