The countdown to this year’s festival is officially underway after The National Piping Centre hosted the Piping Live! Pre-Festival Party last Thursday night! During the event, Gary West chatted to Roddy MacLeod about this year’s festival highlights, and there were performances from Jarlath Henderson & Innes Watson, Iain Speirs, North Lanarkshire Schools Pipe Band and Hecla. The concert was recorded for Pipeline on BBC Radio Scotland, and you can listen to the performances online here until Monday 15th July. Enjoy!
