In 2015 Fèis air an Oir was delighted to be involved in a music heritage project in partnership with Strathnaver  Museum and with support from the Heritage Lottery Fund.  Pibrochs and Poppies was an innovative project which researched the tunes played and composed by pipers who fought in World War One.  Full details on the project are available here, and a short film about the project is available to view below:
