‘Pibroch by the Sea’ Details Announced

Details of the annual ‘Pibroch by the Sea’ event in Brittany, France, have been announced by the promoters.

In a departure from previous years, performances of ceòl mòr will be given at the spectacular Mont St Michel a couple of hours drive east from the usual host village of Cancale.

The date is Saturday, September 7, and the performances will be given between 11am and 2.30pm.

Ten piobaireachd players from Brittany and Scotland will perform in the castle. They include Gold Medallists Jack Taylor and Bill Wotherspoon.

The organisers have said, that given the time constraints on the Saturday, there will be no Masterclass this year.

The following day, September 8, there will be continuous piobaireachd performances at Les Crolles and Port Picain the traditional venues for the PbtS Sunday.

This will be the 19th iteration of ‘Pibroch by the Sea’, the brainchild of famous Breton piper Jakez Pincet. It attracts pipers from all over Europe and is very well supported by local villagers and tourists.
