Pipes of Peace Concert 2012
Celtic Spirit are proud to announce the 6th annual Pipes of Peace concert.
Last year saw the concert move to its new venue, Glasgow’s SECC Armadillo on the Banks of the River Clyde.
Building on last year’s success, 2012 sees another exciting line up including 7 times and current World Pipe Band Champions, Field Marshal Montgomery Pipe Band under the direction of Pipe Major Richard Parkes MBE and Drum Sergeant Keith Orr. In 2011 the band completed the coveted Grand Slam being the only band in history to do this on two occasions.
Joining them on stage is the talented Grade 1, Dowco Triumph Street Pipe Band under the direction of Pipe Major David Hilder and Drum Sergeant Andre Tessier. The Band gained grade 1 status in 2008 and since then have gained great respect from judges and other Bands alike. This will be the Bands first concert in Scotland and they will not disappoint.
The concert which is being sponsored for the fifth year running by Scotland’s finest bagpipe maker R.G. Hardie & Co. Ltd, will have world renowned solo piper, judge and BBC commentator Bob Worrall as Master of Ceremonies. Other acts performing on the night are Celtic Spirit trio and a special performance from the winners of the Yoker Community day event who will be announced on the 7th of August 2012, Tickets are priced at £18.50 and will go on sale on the 25th of January 2012 through www.ticketsoup.com.
