European Pipe Band Championships 2019 - Inverness


Now that we have eventually dried off after the soaking we all took up at the European Championships in Inverness at the weekend we can now finally get round to giving you our update!

Another strong performance from the band saw us take 4th place overall in the contest that was decided this time by the March, Strathspey & Reel discipline.

Our set was as follows:

  • March - Kantara to El Arish
  • Strathspey - The Islay Ball
  • Reel - John Morrison of Assynt House

It was such a shame that the weather did close in and drench everyone in the afternoon as the day started with perfect pipe band conditions, warm and dry.

Events were not dampened too much however and celebrations continued after the contest finished on the journey home to mark Lead Tenor Iona Underwood's birthday. Happy Birthday Iona from us all in the band.

We now have a few weeks before our next competition so focus will sharpen on preparations for our big concert in August. More on that to follow, standby!
