Piper Kyle Howie performs in Dundee’s Wighton Centre

On Wednesday 5th October, young piper Kyle Howie will perform the Friends of Wighton’s monthly Wednesday lunchtime concert in Dundee Central Library.

Kyle Howie first started piping at the age of 10 and now, barely out of his teens, he is one of the most sought after pipers in Scotland. He has appeared at the Edinburgh Tattoo three times, firstly with the Black Watch
and then with the Royal Scots Dragoon Guards. He has recently joined the sensational Red Hot Chilli Pipers, the world renowned bagrock band. In addition to playing the Highland and smallpipes, Kyle is an accomplished
player on the Overton E flat whistle, and is equally at home with the fieriest jig and the most poignant slow air.

The venue is the Wighton Centre, upstairs in the Wellgate library. This specially built performance and study space houses the internationally famous Wighton Collection of historic Scottish music books, dating from two hundred years ago and more. The Friends of Wighton organise concerts and classes in the Centre to make the musical treasures preserved in the books more accessible to the people of Dundee, Fife and Angus.

The concert starts at 1.15pm and lasts about half an hour. Admission is free.
