Roddy MacLeod MBE Festival Director of Piping Live! 2015 Welcome to the 12th year of Piping Live!
“We have put together a fantastic programme and this year’s festival is scheduled to attract over 40,000 spectators to more than 150 events over 7 days.
The festival utilises a number of fantastic venues throughout the city. In particular, we are delighted to be returning to George Square this year after a couple of years away and have a packed programme of music and events for you to enjoy. George Square will host our daily Pipe Band performances, Music of the Nations, Music in the Square and our brand new Pipers Market food marquee where you can grab some locally sourced, Scottish food. At The National Piping Centre our Street Cafe will be open Monday – Friday with an abundance of top quality acts and events throughout the day including the popular Pipe Idol competition.
A huge thanks to all of our sponsors, funders and supporters without whom Piping Live! would not be possible. All that remains to say is that I look forward to seeing you all at this year’s festival and I hope you enjoy yourselves!”
