Brian Lamond New Pipe Major of Dysart & Dundonald
Information from Scotland report that Brian Lamond of Inverkeithing, Fife, is the new Pipe Major of the once famous Dysart & Dundonal Pipe Band.
Lamond replaces 1999 Inverness Silver Star winner James Murray, of Glenrothes, Fife, at the band’s helm.
For most of the 1990s, Lamond played with the Victoria Police Pipe Band (1998 World Champions), and lived periodically in Melbourne, Australia. In 1999, Lamond played with Ontario’s Peel Regional Police Pipe Band.
Brian Lamond has gained notoriety as not only a piper, but a singer/songwriter. After teaching himself to play the guitar, Lamond recorded “Another Day at the Office,” a CD that showcases his songs and piping.
Since James Murray took over Dysart & Dundonald three years ago, the band has climbed steadily from near relegation to Grade 2, to a far more respectable Grade 1 band.
