Today we publish an article written several years ago by the late Denver Cardwell, Northern Ireland, who sadly passed away recently. It concerns pipe band management – and how mismanagement can affect a band on and off the field. It is just one of many contributions Denver, pipe major and senior adjudicator, made to the pipe band world and reflects the time and thought he gave to the music he loved so much. Read it here.
In the many tributes that were written about him (a fulsome one will appear in the next edition of Pipe Band magazine), everyone remarked on what a character he was, full of humour and fun. Well, if ever we needed a reminder of that here’s a copy of the business card he used to circulate. We hope it brings a smile to your face – just what Denver would have wanted.
