Piobaireachd Competition

 

Airth Highland Games Pibroch. Piob, Peeb, means Pipe; Piobaire, Peebair, means Piper; and Piobaireachd, Peeb-air-och with three syllables, means pipe/playing pipe music. Many people simplify the pronunciation by saying Peebrock, probably from the spelling Pibroch which is seen in some Light music and songs. Though more accurately titled Ceol Mor, Cowal More, meaning Big, or Great, Music, the classical music of the Great Highland Bagpipe is commonly referred to as Piobaireachd. This is the music that summoned the clans to battle, celebrated sweet victory and terrible loss, commemorated murder and lamented the deaths of their chiefs and heroes.
