Highland dance is a competitive dance form recognized by the Sport Council of Scotland. It requires stamina, strength, and the ability to persevere during extreme bagpipe assault. It often takes place alongside with Highland Games like those happening in Campbell River this year as a part of the annual Salmon Festival Loggers Sports celebration.

The  4th annual gathering was a huge success as the weather was tremendous and it brought together all kinds of competitors in various events.   Below we are highlighting the two Pipe Bands that won their respective Grades.  

Mark your calendars again. 

The 5th Annual Gathering will take place on

August 11, 12, and 13, 2023

Highland Games were held long ago by the clans of Northern Scotland but has it’s origins far earlier with the Celts of Ireland in Roman times. Some credit the 11th-century Scottish king, Malcolm Canmore, with initiating the first Highland Games. Contests in running, leaping, vaulting, wrestling, lifting heavy weights and putting stones (as one sees today) were begun more than a thousand years ago.

     To demonstrate that the pipes and drums are not just relegated to a defined set of rules you’ll see that they integrate well with other musical instruments and styles.
