A question about the Hobbit UJ soundtrack. Can't Post

I recieved the special edtion Hobbit soundtrack for Christmas and after a couple of listens I really love it!! A couple of queries about the track Erebor. What is the instrument that opens the track? I take it, it is some type of pipes? How do you think it is being used? Perhaps it will be the men of Laketown's theme instrument, just like the Hardanger (norwegin) violin was to Rohan?

I believe it's most likely Northumbrian pipes. // [In reply to] Can't Post

I think it would be more likely to be the "theme instrument" of the Dwarves of Erebor than the men of Laketown. I made a post on this yesterday wondering if the flute in Blunt the Knives is playing a very similar tune to that in Erebor.

BTW, I love the CD as well. I'm completely mesmerized by it. Especially the vocal pieces and the flute/pipes or whatever they are.

Uilleann pipes!

@schulerst: @DougAdamsLOTR #TheHobbit #HowardShore Soundtrack SE CD2 Nr. 15 00:00 - 00:15. Is this a special bagpipe?

One might wonder if this information is in the liner notes but I need a good light and magnifying glass to read the liner notes so I'll just go by the word of Doug's Tweet. :-)
