Talent Within

27/07/2011

Three of the band’s pipers recently celebrated receiving a BA in Scottish Music – Piping.

Craig Muirhead (1st Class Honours), Struan Thorpe (2:1) and David Wilton (1st Class Honours) all graduated earlier this month from the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama here in Glasgow. They now join a long line of experienced players who have gone onto excel in piping and traditional music all over the world. The ScottishPower band has over 10 players now who have achieved this degree course, a proud record for any band. Well done guys and all the best for the future!

Also graduating this month with a BA (Hons) in Psychology (2:1) from Strathclyde University was tenor drummer Iona Macleod. Playing the pipes at her graduation ceremony was our band secretary Jack Henderson. Well done Iona and all the best for the future to you too!
