Mu­si­cian told to pipe down due to court case

The Oban Times - - News -

CALUM MARTIN went the ex­tra mile af­ter po­lice or­dered him to stop pip­ing a bride into her wed­ding cer­e­mony be­cause it was dis­turb­ing an Oban Sher­iff Court case across the road.

Calum, a 29-year- old joiner from Gair­lochhead, was keen He­len and Don­ald Fin­nie should not lose out on their wed­ding day, so piped the newly-mar­ried cou­ple down the street from Oban Regis­tra­tion Of­fices to Ar­gyll Square last Wed­nes­day.

He said: ‘There is only one chance for the bride to have her big day and be piped in,’ he said: ‘She is the most im­por­tant per­son. It is al­ways tra­di­tional the bride and groom get piped in and piped back out.’

At the end, when the court case was fin­ished, Calum piped the new Mr and Mrs Fin­nie through the streets of Oban to make up for lost tunes. ‘The cou­ple were more than happy,’ he said: ‘They loved it.’
