Pipe Idol is back for 2018!
This fantastic competition for pipers aged 21 & Under, sees 16 of the best young players from across the globe compete over 4 heats, for their place in the Pipe Idol Grand final.
Each day 4 competitors will perform at the Street Cafe outside The National Piping Centre, in front of a live audience and a hidden panel of judges. Each competitor will play a March, Strathspey and Reel, a 4 part Hornpipe and Jig and then a musical selection of no more than 5 minutes, so this promises to be a fantastic competition.
This year the Grand Final is once again in the Strathclyde Suite at Glasgow Royal Concert Hall due to the high demand for tickets over the last few years – Tickets are £7 adult / £5 concession (subject to booking fees) and you can get tickets here
Today’s players are:
1) James Stone, Republic of Ireland
2) Eosaph Caimbeul, Scotland
3) Anna Smart, New Zealand
4) Lewis Russell, Scotland
Pipe Idol is sponsored by Fred Morrison Pipes
