The National Piping Centre is calling all pipers from across Scotland and beyond to join them in paying tribute to the thousands of key workers who are still working to keep the country fed, cared for and safe.
On Thursday, 2 April, at 8pm , the National Piping Centre is asking all pipers to go into their gardens, be at their front door or strike up in their living room, wherever you can play safely and still keep socially distant, and play Scotland the Brave to support #NHStheBrave.
A spokesman said: ‘This rousing tune will demonstrate the gratitude to key workers across the nation, supporting those who are helping to fight the Covid-19 pandemic, as well as hopefully fortifying them to carry on through this tough time.
‘So grab your pipes and join the National Piping Centre at 8pm BST on Thursday 2 April and Pipe Up for Key Workers by playing Scotland the Brave for #NHStheBrave.’
The National Piping Centre is the world centre for excellence in piping and exists to promote the study of the music and history of the Highland bagpipe.
They are a centre for teaching, with lessons from beginner to degree level and beyond, as well as having a reference library and museum for historical records, books and artefacts from the world of piping.
