Scottish Pipe Band Championships 2018 Results – SLoT Champions!

St Laurence O’Toole Pipe Band were declared Scottish Pipe Band Champions today at a damp Levengrove Park, Dumbarton. P/M Alen Tully and his band are pictured at the line. Unluckiest band in Grade 1 were Shotts & Dykehead who had to play through a torrential downpour but still managed a sixth place. The weather had an effect on the crowd but there were still significant numbers enjoying the music and the sideshows. 

The other G1 places went to:

2 Inveraray
3 Field Marshal
4 Scottish Power
5 Fife Police
6 Shotts

with the drumming going to SLoT.

Each band had to submit two MSRs, one of which was chosen at the line. The judges in Grade 1 were James Wark, Ronald MacShannon (piping), Alexander Steele (drumming) and Paul Turner (ensemble).

  1. St Joseph’s in Grade 3 a were also caught in that horrific hail storm . They played their msr while a gale blew all around. The video is worth watching!
