  • Reminder -Autumn Solo Piping Judges' Seminar - This Sunday!

    Posted: 14th Nov. 2016

    The Autumn Judges Seminar from the Piobaireachd Society and the Solo Piping Judges’ Association (SPJA) will take place this Sunday, 20th November at The National Piping Centre and is free to all to attend. It will also be livestreamed from The National Piping Centre website - www.thepipingcentre.co.uk/livestream , with a watch again available a few days later. The main subject for discussion will be the set tunes for the Silver Medal competitions in 2017. These are tunes drawn from Book 16 and from the compositions of Pipe Major Donald MacLeod and so are unlikely to be well known. The seminar will be chaired by Jack Taylor and the discussions will be led by Andrew Wright (Book 16 tunes) and John Wilson (Donald MacLeod tunes) and some of the tunes will be illustrated on the pipes. It is hoped that this will be of interest to judges, competitors and teachers, as well as to the wider public. The agenda for the day, and approximate timings, are as follows: 13.00 to 14.30 Book 16 set tunes 14.30 to 15.00 Short break 15.00 to 16.30 Donald MacLeod set tunes All are welcome to attend, please just turn up - or tune in - shortly before 1pm.

  • Autumn Solo Piping Judges' Seminar - Sunday 20 November

    Posted: 11th Oct. 2016

    The Solo Piping Judges' Association (SPJA) and the Piobaireachd Society have decided to adopt a different approach to their autumn judges' seminar this year. The seminar, which is free of charge, will be held in the auditorium at the National Piping Centre in Glasgow and will be open to anyone who wishes to attend. It will also be live streamed so that it may be viewed by those who cannot make it to Glasgow. Information on how to access the live stream will be circulated nearer the time. The main subject for discussion will be the set tunes for the Silver Medal competitions in 2017. These are tunes drawn from Book 16 and from the compositions of Pipe Major Donald MacLeod and so are unlikely to be well known. The seminar will be chaired by Jack Taylor and the discussions will be led by Andrew Wright (Book 16 tunes) and John Wilson (Donald MacLeod tunes) and some of the tunes will be illustrated on the pipes.
