The International Bagpipe Organisation warmly invites you to participate in the Fourth International Bagpipe Conference to mark International Bagpipe Day 2018 (10 March), a celebration of the world’s diverse bagpipes and bagpiping traditions. Following the success of previous conferences, the upcoming event will spread over three days, starting on Friday evening with an opening concert and ending on Sunday afternoon. The conference will be held in Palma, Mallorca, where there is a rich and unbroken piping tradition.
The conferences are a productive and welcoming platform for all people interested in the study of bagpipes: musicologists, ethnomusicologists, music experts, instrument makers, musicians, composers, dancers and music lovers. This event is an exciting interdisciplinary opportunity to discuss various questions relating to the study of bagpipes both today and historically.
All three days are open to the general public and bagpipe enthusiasts are encouraged to attend. Ticket information will be posted on the website in the following weeks.
As the conference will be held in Catalan speaking territory, papers are welcome in English, Spanish and Catalan. Translation options will be provided.
