Piob (Peeb) means Pipe; Piobaire (Peebair) means Piper; and Piobaireachd (Peeb-air-och - 3 syllables) means pipe/playing pipe music. Many people simplify the pronunciation by saying "Peebrock”. 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.
The Glengarry Highland Games will host the Piobaireachd Society Gold Medal (Canada) Contest on Friday, August 4, 2017.Read More
It seems like every committee at this year’s 70th Glengarry Highland Games is adding a special touch to celebrate this historic milestone. The grounds will be abuzz with people coming back to savour the years they have spent at the Games while new visitors are coming to find out what it’s all about and become more of those annual fans. One special group attending will be those who attended the first Games in 1948 and will return this year to enjoy the accomplishment of being there at the beginning and then again 70 years later. Many of these people report that they have been at the Games almost every year. For them it will be a visit to see how much things have changed, but how much they have stayed the same.Read More
