Todd’s Bar recital/contest to be bigger than ever

The annual Todd’s Bar Recital Challenge is slated to take place as usual at Strathclyde University’s Lord Todd’s Bar off of Rottenrow in Glasgow.

Organizer Willie McCallum says that this year’s event at “The Todd” will provide the most diverse array of solo piping talent ever assembled for the recital/contest, with Bruce Gandy, Halifax, Canada; Jack Lee, Surrey, Canada; Angus MacColl, Benderloch, Scotland; and Gordon Duncan, Pitlochry, Scotland performing for the Strathclyde University Silver Medal.

“This is awesome piping talent, each with something different to offer,” says McCallum. “There is always a large crowd at the Todd and with that line-up of pipers we expect this year’s event to be a sell-out.”

While the Todd’s Bar Recital Challenge has been held for four years now, it is part of the Glasgow’s new Piping Hot Festival.

The recital is scheduled to start at 8 p.m. sharp, and tickets are available in advance for £3 each, available directly from The Todd or the National Piping Centre in Glasgow.
