Strangely, apart from the Military Tattoo, there is not a lot of piping in Edinburgh during the Fringe. A few years ago the Royal Scottish Pipers’ Society was asked to fill this gap. A programme of popular marches, strathspeys and reels as well as jigs and hornpipes contrasted with more serious piping including some competition pieces, new compositions, and a piobaireachd, the classical music of the pipes, being played by groups or solo. You will be invited to meet the pipers after the performance.
