HARPERS FERRY, W.Va. ? Musicians from around the country gathered at the Hilltop House Hotel on Saturday to indulge their love for traditional music and wind instruments. Joanie Blanton organized the inaugural Upper Potomac Pipers Weekend.

The musicians didn't play the typical Scottish bagpipes, but "smaller, quieter cousins," Blanton said.
