Pipe band championships

PUPILS from Argyll and Bute will be pitching their musical skills against youngsters from across Scotland when they compete in world’s largest schools piping and drumming competition.

A record number of entries, including 72 school pipe bands and freestyle ensembles as well as 14 quartets for young pipers and drummers, are to go head-to-head at Scottish Schools Pipe Band Championships in Edinburgh on Sunday March 12.

The competition – which attracts about 800 youngsters from around 120 schools, including Dunoon Grammar School, Lochgilphead High School and Tobermory High School – was established to encourage the formation of school pipe bands. It features taster grades for youngsters with no competing experience, as well as providing a forum for schools competing at the highest level.
