Douglas Orr of promoters Glasgow Skye Association Pipe Band reports: Tickets for this concert go on sale on 21 November 2014 and can be purchased directly from the concert hall. The title of the concert for this year is ‘Nous Sommes Prets’ (We are ready) which is the motto of the university and the title of the band’s first album. This is also a reflection of how the band feel as they prepare for the 2015 competition circuit. Below is a short script from the band which will accompany the poster on the Concert Hall website.
