Latest News from the LBPS
This new publication from the Society includes not only all the entries to this year's New Music competition, but also a selection of tunes composed during the past 30 years.
The 30th Anniversary celebrations, party on December 7th at The College of Piping HAS BEEN CANCELLED.
Apologies to any who planned to attend, but the number of positive responses to the invitation was so small that the committee felt it unfair to those few who had arranged to travel long distances to go ahead.
We are delighted to announce the results of the 30th Anniversary New Music Competition. Results were first announced at the Peebles Collogue where the first two winning entries were performed by their composers [the thrid prize went to the USA]
First prize: Gary West - 'The Jedburgh Ba' Game'
Second prize: Paul Roberts - 'The Gin Drinker's Dream'
Third Prize: Craig Hohm - 'The Waterdog'.
Sound files of these available soon.
Thanks to a development grant from the LBPS, the Common Stock Archive is now text-searchable.
This resource comprises all 30 years of the Journal, as well as the three 'Supplements' issued in the first few years.
