Friday Night Piping Concert - Featuring Glenn Brown

We are delighted that Gold Medalist Glenn Brown has agreed to
volunteer his time and services to the Scotland County Highland Games
due to the unfortunate but necessary cancellation of piper Callum
Beaumont who was scheduled to be with us.

Glenn has won the Gold Medal at the Northern Meeting (Inverness), the
Piobaireachd Society (Canada) Gold Medal, the Dunvegan Medal from
the Skye Gathering, as well as the Senior Piobaireachd at the Argyllshire
Gathering (Oban), as well as being an invitee to the Glenfiddich World
Solo Piping Championship in 2017. Glenn has played with the Scottish
Power Pipe Band, the 78th Fraser Highlanders, and served as Pipe Major
of the Peel Regional Police Pipe Band in Ontario. He also served as Pipe
Sergeant of the famed Shotts and Dykehead Caledonia Pipe Band, winning

three world championships with that band. He serves as a professional

bagpiping instructor in Glasgow, Scotland.

We are delighted to welcome Glenn Brown to the Scotland County

Highland Games as the latest in our series of the Gold Medal Recitalist

series associated with our Games. This is Glenn's first visit to the Carolinas,

so let's give him a warm welcome at his recital at 8 p.m. on Friday, October 5

The Sound of Sleat

The Scotland County Highland Games welcomes a new performing act, “The Sound of Sleat” to our entertainment stage for 2018.

The Sound of Sleat is a pipe- centric Celtic trio comprised of Scottish small pipes, cello, vocals and guitar. This talented group of musicians present a unique blend of instruments, which captures the vibrancy as well as the subtlety of Scottish and Irish pipe music. The group offers a versatile program bringing in contrasting vocals with soulful cello accompaniment and other combinations of instruments. "Sleat" takes its name from the peninsula on the Isle of Skye. The "Sound of Sleat" refers to the body of water between the Isle of Skye and the mainland of Scotland. Sleat, (pronounced like “slate”) which in Scottish Gaelic means "smooth", is very fitting for this new, great -sounding band. Their signature tune is the reel, "The Sound of Sleat".
