Classical Pipe Music – Scotland’s Hidden Treasure

This very special concert from The Piobaireachd Society – part of the Edinburgh Fringe Festival – takes the listener on a journey through Scotland’s precious musical heritage. This is a chance to hear some of the finest exponents of classical pipe music, or Piobaireachd (pronounced Peebroch). The pipers invited to perform this year are Stuart Easton, the 2018 Oban Gold Medallist, Dr Peter McCalister the 2018 Inverness Gold Medallist, Darach Urquhart the 2018 Oban Silver Medallist and double Gold Medallist Niall Stewart.

They will each play two tunes in continuous fashion with no gaps for tuning, four tunes before the interval and four after.

The tunes to be played are: the Massacre of Glencoe, the Wee Spree, the Old Men of the Shells, Queen Elizabeth II’s Salute, Lament for Donald Duaghal MacKay, the Daughter’s Lament, the Blind Piper’s Obstinacy and Chisholm’s Salute.

Tickets are priced £10 and are available via the Fringe Box Office and at the door. The entrance fee includes a comprehensive concert programme detailing the history of the music and the tunes played.

Brought to you by The Piobaireachd Society. Part of the Edinburgh Fringe.
