Bruce Campbell is a well-known and highly respected piper/pipe-major, publisher, historian and adjudicator will be delivering a seminar series on Pìobaireachd, adjudicating, and delivering a piping/pìobaireachd workshop at our Mòd Chanada event May 30th/May 31st/June 1st at University of Ottawa. Mòd Chanada focuses attention on and promotes awareness for Scottish Gàidhlig language, music and culture. This year, there will be a strong focus on pìobaireachd and Ceòl Mòr in general. We are hoping to attract not just regular Mòd goers (pipers who compete on practice chanter and small-pipes), but have opened a new competition on Saturday, May 31st for those wanting to compete by playing an Ùrlar of their favourite pìobaireachd tune, and receiving an adjudication for their playing. As always there are good prizes to be won, and fun to be had. Entry to the seminar series is included in the nominal Mòd admission fee. Competition entry fees as well are nominal. The all-day workshop on Sunday, June 1st is available for $50, and places will be limited, so it’s a good idea to book ahead. An idea of what Bruce includes in his workshops can be found at: http://www.duntroonpublishing.com/page520.03.html
