Piobaireachd, or Ceol Mor, is generally regarded as the "classical" form of music for the great Highland bagpipe. The tunes are 10-15 minutes long, complex and variations are often subtle. Please note that the performers and judges require silence from the audience. As a result, this event is not appropriate for children under age five.
