"Scottish or Breton?"
Was the question put to our long and established Breton piper Mael Sicard-cras in a television documentary that was aired this weekend on France 3 Région TV.
The short programme follows Mael around Glasgow and some of the major piping events in the city. He explains about the attraction of coming and playing at the highest level in Scotland and discusses the differences from the Breton way and style of playing.

As part of the band’s 30th anniversary with ScottishPower, they performed a mini concert for staff and families at the company HQ in Glasgow city centre this evening.
The band played various sets from their repertoire some of which were accompanied by Craig Muirhead on keyboards and Ron Jappy on guitar.
A very enjoyable evening which was well received by those who attended.
It was rewarding to be able to showcase the band to company staff and a great opportunity for those seeing and hearing them ‘live’ for the first time to enjoy their music.
In their closing sets the band also managed to play ‘Happy Birthday’ for Leading Drummer Jake Jorgensen who celebrates turning $) today. A birthday cake was even produced and presented to him.
Happy Birthday Jake from all in the band 🥳
And thank you ScottishPower for your continued support!

Well done to Piper Robbie MacIsaac who played the national anthem at last night’s woman’s national football match at Hampden Park.
It was Scotland v Jamaica playing a World Cup send off match which they won 3 - 2.
Fantastic result in front of a record crowd. Well done ladies and all the best for the big tournament.
(And sorry Robbie, no! You can’t go with them!) lol
The band were out early on parade the morning after the British Pipe Band Championships in Paisley to play at and support this fantastic event again.
Split across the city they provided some music and encouragement to the thousands of runners out tackling the 5k and 10k courses for charity.
Always a great day that the band are delighted to be part of.

Here is a recording of our March, Strathspey & Reel performance from Saturday at the British Championships, which earned us two 1sts in Piping and 2nd overall.
Many thanks to Drone Chorus for taking the time to record everyone’s performances on the day! It’s very much appreciated by everyone within the Pipe Band Community.
The weather didn’t hold but the focus, drive and determination sure didn’t wean in the build up to Saturday at the British Pipe Band Championships in Paisley.
The band were delighted to produce an excellent March, Strathspey & Reel to take 2nd place overall. The Pipe Corp took further confidence and were thrilled by winning the two 1st places in Piping.
3rd on out of 12 Grade 1 bands they played their No.2 set:
March - 93rd Highlanders Farewell to Edinburgh.
Strathspey - Devlinside
Reel - Charlie’s Welcome
The band are delighted to continually effectuate tunes that are not often heard in competition and the feedback so far has been great. The setting of Pipe Major Angus MacDonald’s Charlie’s Welcome in particular is catching the hear of many admirer of classic MSRs.
Well done of course to the winners St Laurence O’Toole Pipe Band from Dublin.
The band would also like to send best wishes to the female that took unwell whilst walking past the band as they started tuning up for the March Past.
Piper David Hilder (Paramedic) and Tenor Drummers Emma MacDougall (Specialist Stroke Nurse) and Iona Underwood (Medical Student) rushed to assist a female who collapsed and administered first aid and took control of the situation. It is comforting and reassuring to know these qualities and skills are within the band should they ever be called upon. The band were very proud of David, Emma and Iona’s swift actions and we wish the lady well in her recovery.

Loving this weather, great for getting the bands outside. Let’s hope it continues.
The band are pushing forward with their final preparations for Paisley this Saturday where they take to the line as current British Champions.
3rd on out of 12 Grade 1 bands at 14:50hrs. Hope to see you there!
Here’s a clip of the band marching round from final tuning to compete at Gourock Highland Games last Sunday, playing the famous traditional 44 March ‘Killiecrankie’.
First place at the first competition of the year for the band at the Gourock Highland Games.
In a day that was blessed with glorious sunshine the band won the overall Grade 1 contest, including Best Drum Corp.
It was the March, Strathspey & Reel discipline for Grade 1 and the band played:
March - Kantara to El Arish
Strathspey - The Islay Ball
Reel - John Morrison of Assynt House
The band will now focus on improving further for the British Championships next weekend in Paisley where they take to the field as current champions!
Well done of course to all the latest additions we have on board this year who were competing for this first time with the band today.

Great to have Pipe Major Paul Warren and his team from the Kilmarnock Pipe Band up at our practice on Sunday for a listen.
It was a full day rehearsing with guests and others all helping us prepare for the Worlds concert and fast approaching competition season!
Not long now until Gourock Games which will be our first contest of 2019.
All the best to everyone competing this year and we look forward to seeing you soon.
