Pip­ing Live

The Oban Times - - Leisure -

As well as the com­pet­i­tive side of the worlds, there is also a fan­tas­tic fringe fes­ti­val. Pip­ing Live this year fea­tures all sorts of events which will make for a great week in Glas­gow.

As part of the fringe, there are a few ex­tra com­pe­ti­tions. One such com­pe­ti­tion is Pipe Idol - a solo com­pe­ti­tion which pro­gresses through­out the week with three heats lead­ing to the fi­nal on the Thursday evening.

There are also a num­ber of in­ter­est­ing con­certs, in­clud­ing the Glas­gow launch party for The Mu­sic of Fraser Shaw, which I wrote about in this column pre­vi­ously. The Peat­bog Faeries take to the stage in the Dry­gate Brew­ery on the Friday night and the Af­ter Worlds Shindig Cèilidh

is played this year by the Shimmy Grand Cèilidh Band. All tick­ets for fringe events are avail­able from Pip­ing Live web­site.
