As the summer comes to an end, we felt it was time to give an update on what we have been up to.
Pipe Band Season
Four out of our five band members are pipers with one of the worlds leading pipe bands, Boghall and Bathgate Caledonia, and this has meant a lot of the summer has been spent practicing and competing at several major championships. The band narrowly missed out on a placing at the World Championships this year, however all members were pleased with the bands performance and look forward to working at getting back into the prize list.
The band were pleased to return to The Depot recording studios in Edinburgh. Once again we teamed up with producer Ric Rogass to record a new set of demo recordings. The first track, a set of reels where Emma takes the lead, can be head on the band Soundcloud. We look forward to sharing other recordings in the coming days, so stay tuned!
Despite all of the above we have found time to fit in gigs as well, including a ceilidh in the impressive surroundings of Paisley Town Hall. A thanks must go to our dep bass player Adam, who filled in while Gavin was sunning himself in Turkey.
And we must also mention...
In between all of the above, there has also been some exciting news within the band. Our whistler and ceilidh caller Emma Buchan became Emma Hendry as she and husband Gary tied the knot in Skye and piper Jonny became engaged to his fiance Gemma at the Silver Sands of Morar. Congratulations folks!
More news to follow over the next few days as we have had a couple of very interesting enquiries, but that will do for now!
