Our neighbours at the Ipswich Piping Society (which includes our P/Sgts Neil & John) have organised another great special guest for their 2016 recital.
Terry Tully, ex-Pipe Major of Grade 1 band St Laurence O’Toole will be playing for an audience of pipers and bagpipe enthusiasts from across the region. Terry has been responsible for many of the band’s successes, including a historic win at the Worlds in 2010.
The recital takes place at 7.30pm on Friday 11 March, at The Holiday Inn, the Havens, 2 Ransome’s Eurpoark, Ipswich IP3 9SJ.
Tickets are £12. For more information and to reserve your ticket, click here.
Next month we’re looking forward to holding our first full training day in preparation for the 2016 competition season. As well as working on our competition sets, we’ll also be devoting some time to our learner players to get them ready for the summer season.
To give some valued external feedback, we’ll be joined by piper Roddy Livingstone alongside RAF Waddington & Halton’s D/Sgt Dan Belfield and Bass Drummer Ronnie Campbell.
The day has been organised by our Pipe Major, using funds raised in memory of Willie Allan. Willie was dedicated to teaching the pipes, and we’re sure he’d be pleased to see everyone put through their paces, although no doubt his language would be a little fruitier than that!
