Advance Notice! Blowout 2019 Competition


The Bagpipe Society Blue and Green Piping Planet Awards

The precise details for the 2019 Competition have not yet been finalised but the general theme is Animal Life. All Society Members now have months to prepare; practising their fish scales, gluing feathers onto their pipe bags and clothing, or whatever, and practising suitable repertoire such as The Birdy Song, The Hens March to the Midden, Nellie The Elephant etc. Let your Natural Animal Instincts run wild! There will be positive discrimination for bagpipe- playing pantomime horses or cows and undoubtedly there will be classes for endangered, extinct and mythical animals. No entry must involve live animals.
