Or anything weird like that! Bag pipe even! Oh I love bag pipe!

So I'm trying to get into some of the other instruments and I would like some music to assist me on that. Any sugestions?

Anything goes, just tell me what style it is etherwhise so I know what I'm checking out. :)

Gentle Giant (or their occasional guests) played a wide array of
instruments, including violin, cellos, saxes, trumpet, horn,
recorders, xylophone, regal, vibraphone, tuned percussion (Edge of
Twilight)...
Thre's some hammered dulcimer in Genesis' first two albums,
although it's sometimes hard to spot
Pink Floyd had a kazoo solo on Corporal Clegg and a Salvation Army
band on Jugband Blues
You should also try prog-folk and psych-folk bands (Trader Horn,
Fuschia, Comus etc.). Incredible String Band, for instance had
anything from harmonium to tin whistle, harmonica, celtic harp and
more
Dando Shaft had an excellent mandolinist, who also played flute and
violin
Fripp is credited with Peter's pedal harmonium on Islands (the song)
PFM had a very good flute and violin player in Mauro Pagani and
keyboardist Premoli showed his skills on accordion in La luna nuova
Roger Hodgson of Supertramp played tin whistle on their first album
Delitae musicae from Focus's Hamburger Concerto is played on lute
and recorder
as for bagpipes, I can only suggest TaurusII on MIke Oldfield's Fibe
Miles out, there's a uillean pipe part played by Paddy Moloney.
Have a good listen!

Horslips (a criminally ignored Irish band) use all 3!!

Charles o'Connor plays violin and mandolin and Jim Lockhart plays flute (and God, better than anyone INCLUDING Ian Anderson) and Uillean pipes (the Irish equivalent of bagpipes) as well as recorders and keyboards.

Give 'em a try. Their website is http://www.horslipsrecords.com/ - http://www.horslipsrecords.com/  and they have just reformed after 25 years!

Start with the Tain and the Book of Invasions. Rock based on Irish folk, but done brilliantly. They are legends in Ireland.

PS they are on this site!!

Have to say the 'acid folk' genre, as has been said already, is one of the most creative genres for utilising non electric instruments.

One of the very earliest acid folk albums I know of is 'The Fool' by an design collective of that name. It's very similar to the Incredible String Band, and was produced by Graham Nash of The Hollies.

I know one track on this definitely has a bagpipe solo on it, plus Graham Bond is bashing out some neat organ chords on some of the album too! I think it's a classic myself...

The folk and folk/rock bands are your best bet for some of those older and more exotic instruments, like violins and recorders (a form of flute).  Here are some recommendations:

Gryphon (recorder, crumhorns, bassoon, etc.)

Malicorne (violin, recorder, crumhorn, hurdy-gurdy, and many others)

Steeleye Span (violin, dulcimer)

Esta ("Mediteranean Crossroads"), The Cock and Bull Band (bagpipes)

And some prog. rock bands:

Gentle Giant (violin, cello, recorders)

PFM (violin, flute)

Jethro Tull (flute)

Curved Air, Kansas (violin)
