Rona Lightfoot's 80th Birthday Bash @ Piping Live!

The Glasgow Uist and Barra Association are delighted to be honouring Rona Lightfoot in Glasgow with a traditional Ceilidh to mark her 80th Birthday at Piping Live! Rona was a trailblazer for female pipers in the early 70s and is frequently credited with being the first woman to compete at the Northern Meeting and in the Bratach Gorm.

She is undoubtedly one of Gaelic Scotland’s finest tradition bearers not just in Piping but Song, Cantaireachd and Storytelling.

Join us for an evening of tunes and songs with some of Scotland’s finest pipers and singers including the Urban Teuchters, Dr Angus MacDonald, Sineag MacIntyre, Angus Nicolson and Mairi MacInnes… and more to be announced. There will also be a special appearance from the guest of honour!

This event is in association with the Glasgow Uist and Barra Association.
