Leading-Drummer Graham Brown has been summarily sacked by Pipe-Major John Cairns, possibly leaving the Grade 1 Peel Regional Police Pipe Band without a drum section.

According to sources, Brown was asked to resign from the band on the morning of August 20th, little more than a week after the band made the Grade 1 Final at the World Pipe Band Championships, with its drum section placing second in the Qualifier round against 17 other bands.

Peel went on to place eighth and thirteenth in drumming in the MSR and Medley events, respectively, in the 14-band Final.

“I can confirm that Graham Brown is no longer with the Peel Regional Police Pipe Band, Cairns said. “We thank him for his time with the band as lead-drummer and we wish him well with his future endeavors. As to where we go from here
