Boghall & Bathgate Plans Belfast Concert

The Boghall & Bathgate Caledonia Pipe Band of Bathgate, Scotland, has announced that it will perform on stage in Belfast, Northern Ireland, on May 5, 2001, at the Spires Centre.

The concert will also be recorded for the band’s first album since 1989’s Rubik’s Cube album. The Monkstown Mossley Pipe Band of Belfast is promoting the concert, which, according to the band, will also feature guest performers.

“The guys and I are really looking forward to the concert,” said Ross Walker, Boghall & Bathgate Pipe Major. “It will give us the opportunity to demonstrate the forward strides the band has taken in the last couple of years – getting close to the Boghall of old.”

Boghall finished the 2000 season on a very strong note by winning the Cowal Pipe Band Championship at Dunoon, Scotland, in August. Many had thought that the band deserved a higher placing at the 2000 World Pipe Band Championships, in which it finished sixth.

Early expert predictions indicate that 2001 could be an even bigger year for Boghall.

“We’re looking forward to the new competition season, building on the success of last year The concert will also help us to hit the ground running when the new season arrives,” Walker continued.

Further information on the May 5 Boghall & Bathgate Belfast concert can be obtained from the band’s Web site.
