World’s Week – Day 4 at the College, Thursday 10th August:
After yesterday's superb recital by Michael Grey and the sextet from Boghall & Bathgate Caledonia, tomorrow – Day 4 – will be another busy day at the College.
We are delighted to welcome Donald MacPhee as our soloist. Donald's pibroch – sponsored by the Piobaireachd Society – will be The King's Taxes. Donald, originally from Texas, has been living in Scotland since 1997. He won the Gold Medal at the Northern Meeting in 2005. A quartet from the newly-promoted-to-Grade 1, Johnstone Pipe Band will then take to the stage.

From 10.30am-2.30pm we are also hosting a free Trade Fair. This will be open from 10.30am-2.30pm, and will provide an ideal opportunity to talk first hand to the people behind products such as G1 Reeds, X-TREME pipes and reeds, Wallace Bagpipes, Debbiecovers, Kilberry Bagpipes, Highland Reeds and Begg Bags. All these products can be purchased directly from the College Shop … PLUS, for the rest of this week and all of next week, the College Shop is offering 5% off all products (except the Piping Times and lessons). Quote the code WW17 at checkout or when you contact us.
The College is only TWO stops on the underground from Cowcaddens station. Alight at Kelvinbridge and turn left. Go across the bridge and take the second left.
