Piping Live! Glasgow’s International Piping Festival is the biggest festival of its kind in the world and the week-long celebrations will see more than 200 events take place across the city from 10-16 August.
Returning to George Square for the first time since 2012, the festival will bring the best pipers and musicians right into the heart of Glasgow. International bands will showcase their repertoire at various spots on Buchanan Street before performing in George Square as part of ‘Pipe Band Parades’, with talented artists from all corners of the globe ready to share their traditions and musical heritage in the ‘Music of the Nations’ series. George Square will also host the new ‘Pipers Market’, celebrating the very best of fresh, local produce as part of Scotland’s Year of Food and Drink.
In addition to showcasing the best pipers and pipe bands from across the globe, Piping Live!’s diverse programme will also celebrate multi-instrument traditional musicians and bands. The festival will feature a number of unique and never-before-seen collaborations between musicians from home and abroad in its famed evening concerts, with highlights set to include the Scott Wood Band, Finlay MacDonald and Chris Stout, Fred Morrison and Borja Baragano and many more!
