News: The Pibroch Network Launches With A £200,000 Funding Boost

A new digital start-up to foster artistic vigour and innovation in pibroch has been launched by the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland.

The Pibroch Network is a comprehensive online database that aims to make it easy for people to discover, learn, teach and research pibroch. Its vision is of a world in which pibroch features in mainstream education and performance and is valued internationally for its positive contribution to cultural life and wellbeing.

The Pibroch Network has recently received a boost through a £200,000 donation from the Louis Sterne Trust. It will seed a permanent endowment fund which will be managed jointly by the Royal Conservatoire’s Department of Traditional Music and the institution’s Research and Knowledge directorate.
