Taking another novel approach to the band’s August 14th “Ascension” show at the Glasgow Royal Concert Hall, Inveraray & District is asking its many fans to vote for the competition medley they would prefer to hear on the night.

The band has launched an online poll that will run until the half-way point intermission at the concert itself.

The band requested that the pipes|drums act as the “main go-to place for voting,” and will also share the poll on its own website and Facebook page.

Readers can listen to the medleys via publicly posted videos from competitions.

Medley #1

“Helen Black of Inveran”

“The Strathspey King”

“The Devil in the Kitchen” (Strathspey & Reel)

“Willie Murray’s Reel”

“Grim King of the Ghosts”

“Bronn’s Blue Brozzi”

“Dunrovin Farm”

Medley #2

“The Ceilidh Lines”

“Let the Cold Wind Blow”

“The Handshaker”

“Steve Byrne’s Jig”

“Let the Cold Wind Blow”

“Miss Sarah Drummond of Perth”

“Stirling Castle”

“John Morrison, Assynt House”

“Alick C. MacGregor”

The online poll:

The band also confirmed that the August 14th concert is completely sold out, with 100 standing room tickets snapped up in less than two days.

    This is a really neat idea. I so wish I could see the concert! I wonder which medley the pipe major is hoping gets picked.
