Fred Morrison announces May Canadian tour

Renowned Scottish piper Fred Morrison has announced a Canadian spring tour for May, covering several provinces and a range of events, linking with pipe bands, competitions, and festivals. On offer is a show that features his extraordinary abilities on the Highland and uilleann pipes, as well as the low whistle. He’ll also teach and judge as part of the tour.

“I’m looking forward to getting back on the road in Canada,” said Morrison. “We had a Canadian tour planned for 2020 right before everything shut down, and it’s going to be great to meet friends old and new to share tunes and stories.”

Morrison’s tour starts in Brantford, Ontario, on May 3rd and concludes toward the end of the month in Duncan, British Columba, on Vancouver Island.

“I’ve visited quite a few of these places in past tours, and there’s always so much to take in, “Morrison added. “The distances are huge, and the geography is so diverse, but the people have always been so welcoming and enthusiastic for a tune, so I can’t wait to get back.”
