The College of Piping and Celtic Performing Arts of Canada is pleased to announce that we will once again will be hosting the 2019 Atlantic Canada Piobaireachd Challenge, in partnership with the Atlantic Canada Pipe Band Association. The date of the Piobaireachd Challenge is May 3rd and May 4th, 2019 and it will be held at the College of Piping and Celtic Performing Arts of Canada in Summerside in our brand new Celtic Performing Arts Centre.
Our adjudicator for the 2019 Atlantic Canada Piobaireachd Challenge is Finlay Johnston. Finlay is the 2018 Glenfiddich Champion. He is a piping instructor at the National Piping Centre in Glasgow, Scotland and is a part time reed maker at his father’s business Pipe Dreams the manufacturers of Ezeedrone Reeds.
We are excited to announce that new for this year is a judge’s recital on the Friday night at the College in our brand new Celtic Performing Arts Centre. We are also holding an amateur jig contest on the Friday night (same location as the recital). The recital will have a $5.00 charge but for competitors this covers your entry into the amateur jig contest. The amateur jig contests will take place before the recital. The amateur jig contests will start at 6:30pm (doors open at 6pm) with a short intermission at their conclusion and the recital will commence after that.
A reminder to piobaireachd players, you can choose your tunes from any of the lists provided on the entry form.
