The new, bumper edition of the inaugural Piping Times Annual was launched in style in Glasgow last night.

A launch party – with Scottish Government COVID-19 regulations in place – was held in the auditorium of the National Piping Centre’s city centre headquarters. The capacity audience included contributors, long-term readers and enthusiasts.

Director of Piping, Finlay MacDonald spoke of the publication – copies of which were eagerly perused on the night – and introduced a bill of first class piping that included a quartet from Field Marshal Montgomery Pipe Band, Jarlath Henderson and Angus MacColl.
