The International Pipe and Tabor Festival started in 1999 and The Taborers Society was formed in 2005.
This is a new age in the history of the instrument – new performers, new repertoire, new makers, research. The pipe and tabor is reaching into areas it has not ventured before and we are aware of the need to document this and make it accessible.
There are three parts to the archiving project:
- Paper archives – documents, photos and ephemera
- Digital archive – on-line documents, sites, electronic media
- Sound and Video
