BBC Coast: Brittany episode
Do any of you knowledgeable people know what short segment of music I heard at the end of the lighthouse scenes of BBC Coast: Brittany (episode 3 of 8)? Sounds like bagpipes, but could be wrong in saying it sounds almost like an Irish lilt? Any help greatly appreciated!

There is a very strong tradition of Celtic music in Brittany and they do have an instrument called a biniou (or cornemuse) which is like the Irish Uillian (apologies for spelling) pipes which feature in recordings by people like the Chieftains and Planxty. I didn't see the episode myself, but that's the kind of area you should be looking in. Good luck.
