The Piobaireachd Society is to promote its second concert of ceol mor as part of the Edinburgh Festival Fringe.
The concert ‘Classical Pipe Music - Scotland’s Hidden Treasure’ is on Sunday, August 11, at 7pm. As last year the venue is the 200-seat St Cecilia’s Hall, Edinburgh. The concert is expected to finish around 9.30pm and there will be a small reception afterwards.
The pipers invited to perform this year are Stuart Easton, NZ, 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, Kyle. 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, MacCrimmon’s Sweetheart 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.
Piobaireachd Society President Robert Wallace said: ‘Last year’s recital was a great success and introduced many visitors to ceol mor. St Cecilia’s Hall is a beautiful venue with an excellent acoustic for the bagpipe. The absence of tuning and the quality of the musicianship
of this year’s recitalists will guarantee another very enjoyable evening of piobaireachd music.’
