Young pipers’ European success
LOCHALSH Junior Pipe Band is celebrating success at the European championships in Forres on June 25.
The young musicians were second in the Novice B category. The band, together with Ross and Cromarty Pipes and Drums School pipe band, who came fifth in Novice A, and City of Inverness Youth Pipe Band, who finished ninth in Novice B, is run as an extension to the work of Highland Council’s Instrumental Tuition Service.
Norman Bolton, Highland Council’s music development officer said: ‘Having three bands at the Europeans is testament to the hard work of instructors and the support of parents and members. Their successes are certainly well deserved.’
