25 Years of Blowout SaturdaysBy:
This year marks the 25th Blowout. The Bagpipe Society began in order to support the re-emergence of English piping in the ‘80s. To me, the Saturday night Blowout concert reflects what is best about the state of piping in any one year. And then the bal afterwards shows how we keep up the quality and let our hair down at the same time. Last year, as I emerged from yet another incredible Saturday night concert, it struck me that these concerts demonstrate the maturity of the Bagpipe Society and its willingness to experiment.
