A unique combination of Scotland’s richest traditions of bagpipe music with some of its oldest stories. Though Fionn Mac Cumhail, Diarmaid, Grainnhe and Ossian are part of a shared Scottish-Irish saga, Scotland has its own version of these stories, and its own songs and music. By bringing these together in Stirling’s Great Hall, the Scottish International Storytelling Festival is re-mixing entertainment that goes back to the first Stewart Kings with their love of storytelling, poetry and music.


‘The Pipes and the Story’ assembles a stellar line-up of Scotland’s musical talent, including Ross Ainslie, Allan MacDonald, Brighde Chaimbeul, Griogair Labhruidh, and Angus and Kenneth MacKenzie.
