Promoting the Teaching & Learning of Piping & Drumming
The fifth programme in the series is a must for solo pipers as it delves into the world of competitive piping with unique access to the prestigious Glenfiddich competition held annually at Blair Castle, Pitlochry. A gathering for the world’s best exponents of Pìobaireachd (Great Music) and Ceol Beag (Little Music).
If you’ve missed the fifth programme, the sixth covers the world of Pipebands. Whether it is one of the big international competitive bands or the local town Pipeband, they are colourful and strike up an emotive sound whenever they play. The programme visits 2010 World champions St Lawerence O Toole as they come together from many corners of Eire for a mid-week practice in Dublin.
Inveraray and District Pipeband under the tutelage of Stuart Liddle prove that dedication and enthusiasm are vital for any band wanting to progress through the competitive ranks, while the young players of the Sgoil Lionacleit Pipeband show that the piping tradition is alive and well in the Southern Isles
