Yes, indeedy, it is yet another video. The bacbib (so says the caption for the video) is a type of Welsh bagpipe. The tune here is called "Lloyd's Whim"; it definitely goes to show the kinship of Welsh and Breton traditional music. The link between the music and the video--the accompanying horned clarinet, which you also hear, was made from wood from one of the yew trees in St. Brynach's churchyard. The piper/pipemaker John Tose, who made the clarinet and the video, has a website that tells you quite a bit more about Welsh pipes and their relatives.
