The Islay Pipe Band is busy with the competition season at the moment. Yesterday they performed at the first competition for the season, the British Championships in Paisley, achieving a very respectable 8th place (out of 14) in Grade 2. Here’s a video of their performance:
They were only one point behind the 7th place, but 4 points ahead of the joint 9th/10th place. Hopefully a successful season ahead of them.
Linsay is, and she has prepared this warning for the competition, be ready for the Islay Pipe Band in 2018:
Looking forward to a successful 2018 season for the Islay Pipe Band!
The second season for the Islay Pipe Band to compete in Grade 2 has arrived. The first big event was the British Championships which took place on St James Playing Field, Paisley, on Saturday 20/May/2017. Considering the resources and small size of Islay the band achieved an excellent 9th place out of 15 bands. Here’s a video of their performance:
The next public performances will be during the Islay festival, on 28/May/2017 at Bruichladdich and 1/Jun/2017 at Kilchoman.
