The Sound of Scotland: The World Pipe Band Championships
It’s said that no one with even a drop of Scottish blood in his veins can help but feel a surge of emotion at the sound of bagpipes. If that’s so, then passions are sure to reach tsunami volume on August 16—17, when the World Pipe Band Championships take place in Glasgow. During this two-day fête, 200 pipe-and-drum bands converge on Glasgow Green to compete for international titles; 40,000 fans are expected to come listen, as well as participate in Highland Games and Highland Dancing. If you’ve got a tam-o-shanter or family tartan, this is the time to break them out.
