Other Traditional Music Sites (mostly not bagpipe related)

The Contemplator - Excellent site with lots of music from Great Britain and Ireland.
Digital Tradition Folk Music Database - Lyrics and scores for many folk music songs.
    Note that most of these scores require considerable editing to be playable on bagpipes.
Irish Music Page - Lots of information on Irish music.
Traditional Scottish Songs - Good source of lyrics of Scottish songs.
Celtic Lyrics Collection - Good site on Celtic (Scottish and Irish) songs.
German and Other Folksongs - In spite of the name, this site tries (and mostly succeeds) to be
     a very comprehensive site including information on just about all kinds of folk music.  Not as
     well organized as the previous sites, but it has such a large collection that it's worth a look.

Note:  The little flags at the top are respectively, the Royal Flag of Scotland, the Scottish National Flag, and the Irish National Flag.  The Scottish National flag is  the Cross of St Andrew, the patron saint of Scotland, which will be recognized as one component of the British Union Jack.
