Top 3 in the World

16/08/2011

Continuing on a high after producing an excellent pre-worlds concert on Wednesday night the band delivered two stellar performances at the World Pipe Band Championships on Saturday 13th August in Glasgow Green securing them in 3rd position overall.

An excellent March, Strathspey and Reel performance in the first leg of the final set them up nicely for another very solid, clean and precise Medley selection which guaranteed them a top three slot.

The band was thrilled on the day by all the positive comments not only from the listening public but also the expert commentators from the media covering the event.

Congratulations must also go to our Drum Major who was placed in 5th place overall in the Adult Drum Majors competition.

The BBC Scotland television programme that covered the whole Grade 1 final will be aired on BBC 1, Sunday 21st August at 17:45hrs.

All the performances can also be listened to again over the internet at
