Opinions on the Development of Piobaireachd


Episode 52 – on March 22, 2014, Allan Hamilton of Pipers’ Persuasion attended the Annual Conference of the Piobaireachd Society and to a large audience of members displayed a video collage of famous interviewees encapsulating some of their views on the expression of piobaireachd and its general direction. This is not a definitive expression of the interviewees but merely a flavour. To do these individuals justice one should go to their whole interviews to put them entirely into context and I beg the forbearance of the contributors in this respect. The Video was well received and it is hoped that this wider dissemination will aid in interesting viewers into watching and learning from the whole interviews that are available here. Pipers’ Persuasion would take this opportunity in thanking the Piobaireachd Society for their warm welcome and generous hospitality.
