Founded in 1972, it’s been helmed since 2016 by Pipe Major Ross Walker, together with Leading Drummer Gordon Brown, who’s held the role since 1991, having first joined the Novice Junior Band in 1976. Such continuity of membership, together with a focus on encouraging young players – who are taught by their Grade 1 seniors – has been integral to Boghall and Bathgate’s distinguished competitive record.
Comprising ten top Highland pipers/composers, Tryst first performed at Celtic Connections 2017, showcasing new music inspired by the piobaireachd tradition. With supplementary instrumentation including whistles, keyboards, guitar and accordion, as well as canntaireachd vocals, electronic beats and samples, they’re carrying the bagpipe canon boldly into the future. “Utterly compelling majesty... at once viscerally primal and stunningly sophisticated” (Scotsman)
While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Peoples Ford Boghall & Bathgate Caledonia Pipe Band with Tryst are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
