All Juvenile eyes are now looking to the Scottish Schools Pipe Band Championship – Sunday 12th March at James Gillespie School, Edinburgh.

One member of the audience said: ‘The top three had a bus ticket between them, from musicality to tone and ensemble.  The standard is exceptional for ‘kids’. Interesting to note a number of unconnected Grade 1 players in the audience. It was also great to hear a wider spread of tunes. Not an Lord Alexander Kennedy or Highland Wedding in sight.’
