Kintyre’s mu­si­cal tal­ents

Campbeltown Courier - - LETTERS -

KINTYRE nur­tures mu­si­cal tal­ent far in ex­cess of the size of its pop­u­la­tion.

This week the Courier re­ports on a drum ma­jor win­ning a great hon­our. Any­one who has wit­nessed Liam Ren­ton’s flour­ishes, at the head of a pipe band, can­not fail to be im­pressed as the judges were at Cowal.

Charles MacLean, from just up the road in Lochgilp­head, may be an adopted son but he car­ries the torch for Ar­gyll mil­i­tary pip­ing and cur­rently has three Camp­bel­town pro­tégés.

Sadly this week marks the early pass­ing of fid­dle player Mau­rice McMil­lan Dun­can, renowned through­out Ar­gyll.

KSPB made up for re­cent dis­ap­point­ments with a good show­ing at Cowal.
