Piping Live! 2021

Sat 7th – Sun 15th Aug 2021
Event link: pipinglive.co.uk


With the success of the reduced programme last year, this year will see the livestreaming and premiering of as many events as possible across the nine days of the festival.

However, with the Scottish Government announcing recently that audiences may be able to return to venues – subject to capacity constraints – organisers are looking at adapting as many events as possible to allow audiences to attend, where that can happen. If this is possible, there will be strict hygiene guidelines in place.

Finlay MacDonald, Piping Live!’s Artistic Director said: “We are preparing a fantastic line up and want our friends worldwide to be able to come together both online and, if possible, in person to enjoy the music that we all love.”

A full announcement with more details of the wider Piping Live! programme will be made towards the end of May.

Wee Solas is a festival where audience and artists will have space to feel safe and comfortable, whilst stretching themselves and expanding creatively.

Wee Solas will showcase the same ambition in programming that Solas Festival is known for, with a carefully curated selection of music, performances and workshops across all art-forms as well as talks and discussions. A temporary community will be created where the programme will celebrate the huge diversity of creative Scots, as well as making space for audiences to join the creative conversation. The venue in the grounds of Scone will be the perfect backdrop to this, with expansive green meadows to allow for physical distancing, and mature trees under which to reflect and connect.
