The World’s Pipe Bands Meet on the Green!
Things have been quiet around Pipehacker lately. Piping, familyâ€¦busy busy. (More new content coming doon the road.) What is not quiet is the buzz and hubbub in Glasgow this week leading up to Saturday and Sunday’s World Pipe Band Championships. I am missing being in Scotland terribly (sniff), but I have enjoyed living vicariously through friends on Facebook. I do know where I will be tomorrow and Sunday morning, though! Here are the live links you need to watch the live video stream from Glasgow Green. The live stream has been a godsend for pipers and drummers not able to make the trip in person. Many a group will be having early morning viewing parties here in the USA. Good luck to all pipe bands. US representation is not as deep this year as in the past, but best of luck particularly to LA Scots, NY Metro, Ulster Scottish, Saffron United, and Catamount!
Saturday live stream of pipe bands from the World Pipe Band Championships. It’s still not clear yet how this is going to work or which band circles will be covered. The two heats of the Grade 1 qualifiers are simultaneous after all. I’m hoping for a smattering of grades throughout the day.
