Pip­ing Live!

The Oban Times - - 10 Letters -

This week­end, Glas­gow Green will once again stage the an­nual World Pipe Band Cham­pi­onships. Start­ing on Fri­day, all the best pipe bands in the world will do bat­tle in the most pres­ti­gious com­pe­ti­tion of the year.

It brings an end to the Pip­ing Live fes­ti­val which has been go­ing on all week in Glas­gow. Ev­ery year the fes­ti­val trans­forms the city – and this year is no dif­fer­ent. Fringe events in­clude Fes­ti­val Club Fri­day with Lorne MacDougall, Pa­trick Mo­lard and Yves Berthou in the Na­tional Pip­ing Cen­tre; The Af­ter Worlds Shindig on Satur­day night in The Art School with Flook and Fred Mor­ri­son; and a con­cert on Sun­day from the Tan­nahill Weavers – cel­e­brat­ing 40 years of the band.
