Ossian: The Pipes and the Story

Thursday 18 October 2018

Stirling Castle

A unique combination of Scotland’s richest traditions of bagpipe music with some of its oldest stories. 

Though Fionn Mac Cumhail, Diarmaid, Grainnhe and Ossian are part of a shared Scottish-Irish saga, Scotland has its own version of these stories, and its own songs and music. By bringing these together in Stirling’s Great Hall the Festival is re-mixing an entertainment that goes back to the first Stewart Kings with their love of storytelling, poetry and music.

‘The Pipes and the Story’ assembles a stellar line-up of Scotland’s musical talent, including Ross Ainslie, Allan MacDonald, Brighde Chaimbeul, Griogair Labhruidh, and Angus and Kenneth MacKenzie.
