Play on Buchanan Street at Piping Live! 2022


Pipe Bands on Buchanan Street are back for 2022, and Piping Live! is now taking applications. Until 2019, Piping Live! had a packed schedule of pipe bands from across the world performing on Buchanan Street as part of the festival programme, and for 2022 they are bringing it back.
