Piping occasion to be streamed
Courtesy of BBC Scotland, the streamlining will be available online at the bbc.co.uk/worlds website.
The event is set to take place on August 11th. It will be the fourth year in a row that BBC Scotland has streamed it live.
"We've had a chorus of approval for our online live coverage of the event from piping fans in many countries," commented BBC Scotland's Eileen Herlihy.
She added that a lot of traditional music enthusiasts are set to throw "piping parties" at the same time as viewing the coverage, according to feedback.
Last year's World Pip Band Championships were held on August 13th, two days later than they will occur this year, according to the event's website, theworlds.co.uk.
A news story on the site states that, according to The Royal Scottish Pipe Band Association, Glasgow will be the setting for the event next year too, as well as in 2014 and 2015, having been awarded hosting rights.
