Pentland Caledonia Pipes and Drums
Pentland Caledoinia are a community pipe band located in Balerno, Scotland, it was created by Gary Newton (the one smiling in the picture) many years ago as he couldn't be bothered driving to bands that were to far away (Colinton and Currie, Livingston) this way he could go to band practice then hit the pub after before walking up the road.
Although the band primarily play in local Gala days,some of the memebrs regularly make the trip To New York to play in the Tartan day Parade (well that's what they say, I think they go for the shopping?)
We have also played in various at festivles around the world and have made many friends and contacts in many countries
We are currently going through an expansion phase and as such would like to hear from playing Pipers and Drummers of any level, no major commitment but we do play in Gala days from the middle of May to the end of June (and the usual ad-hoc engagements throufghout the year)
If interested we also run a tutor programme and will teach anyone, all we ask is that you commit to the tutoring (this usually means that most 5 year olds, while initially excited, will quickly get very bored)
