Bagadou Championship 2018


The Breton Bagad championships in Brest, Brittany are the annual kickoff of the championship season for Breton Bagadou. Breton Bagad performances are always a musical treat, with ensembles comprised of traditional Breton bagpipes, bombardes, Highland bagpipes, and various additional woodwinds and percussion. In a unique twist, each year, the Bagads present a traditional and modern music arranged around a theme. Bagad Cap Caval took the top prize.
