Blowout 2016


Of course, we’re on familiar ground, indeed literally, in the case of some of our tents, but it’s no bad thing for so much about the Blowout to be much the same. As top-rank Irish piper Liam Og O’Flynn said on that BBC Scotland programme, ‘in piping you’re part of a tradition, and that’s a comfortable place to be’. But no living tradition can be just about doing the same old things, and the Blowout shows how things are also moving forward.

We are settling into our new website, including making available articles from our thirty year history. If you spot something inaccurate, garbled or missing, or if you want to volunteer to help us improve our site, please mail info@bagpipesociety.
