Kelso 23 July 2011

Kelso Civic Week ended on Saturday 23rd July with the annual fancy dress parade. As ever, we joined the Kelso Pipe Band for a massed band into the Town Square.

Coldstream had a big band out - 10 pipers! A great blend of experience and youthful enthusiasm; well, that's one way of putting it!

Interesting to see how the bands uniform has changed over the years:


The photograph of the Band taken in Eyemouth is next to the memorial to Scotland's worst fishing disaster, which affected many coastal communities in South East Coast Scotland, but which had a devastating effect on Eyemouth.

Eyemouth Herring Queen 2011

We played on 17th July at the Eyemouth Herring Queen Festival.

As guests of the Berwick & Eyemouth Royal British Legion Band we performed in a massed bands with B&E RBL and the Kelso Band.

And the sun was shining and all was well with the world.

What could disturb a Band photo more than the search and rescue helicopter? Prince William driving it that's what! (Only joking)

2011 World's

The 2011 World Pipe Band Championships take place later than usual this year on 13th August, which means that with Civic Week starting on 31st July we can go.

Ian is looking for numbers for what is a great day out, lots of good music and the added delights of Glasgow.

The 2010 World's were won by St Laurence O' Toole from Dublin and mighty fine they were.
