Power prepares for ‘The Waterfront’


Scottish Power Pipe Band is taking to the stage in Belfast’s Waterfront Hall on 27th April 2013 in an event promoted by Wonderland Productions NI and the Grade 2 Aughintober Pipe Band.

Under the control of Pipe Major Chris Armstrong and leading drummer Barry Wilson, the accomplished ensemble visits Northern Ireland just weeks before the first Major Championship of the 2013 season.

Scottish Power Pipe Major Chris Armstrong commented ‘We’ve had a hugely successful 2012 and the opportunity to showcase our music at Belfast’s Waterfront Hall at the beginning of next season is one we are really looking forward too. Building on our ‘Energy’ concert we will be accompanied by a number of top musicians from Northern Ireland during the evening so there will be a great mix of music to satisfy all tastes’

Glenn Ferry of Aughintober Pipe Band added ‘We have been working hard with Chris & Wonderland Promotions NI over the past few months to bring this event together. Northern Ireland was once the place for ‘Big Pipe Band’ concerts with the Victoria Police in Ballymena and the ground breaking 78th Fraser’s Live in Ireland concert seen as a watershed moments for pipe band concerts and recordings’ he continued. ‘This event gives the opportunity for the piping mad public on this side of the Irish Sea a chance to experience one of the worlds best in action’.

Tickets for the 27th April Showpiece are available from www.waterfront.co.uk at a price of £20 & £18 or direct from the Aughintober Pipe Band.
