[Music] Meet Rufus Harley, the First Jazz Bagpiper

As far as I know, Rufus Harley is the ONLY jazz bagpiper, but I’d love to be proven wrong, as I have a fondness for both bagpipes and America’s finest genre of music.

Ashwanta Jackson of Atlas Obscura gives a nice portrait of Rufus Harley and his rather unique influence on jazz.
