Peoples Ford Boghall and Bathgate Caledonia Grade 1 band were delighted to take 2nd place as a band and drum corps at the European Championships in Inverness yesterday. All sections of the band handled the conditions expertly and the runners-up spot surpasses our result at Paisley earlier this season as the highest finish in PM Ross Harvey’s tenure.
We will now take a well deserved short break from practices, before returning to prepare for the Scottish Championships in July. Grade 1 members will be hoping for better piping weather as they have the honour of performing at the Festival de Ortigueria next week.
The Dronechorus recording of our performance is below. Thanks again Dronechorus for the video.
