Eighteen Grade 1 bands entered for Scottish Championship
The first Royal Scottish Pipe Band Association major championship – the Scottish – will take place this Saturday, May 22, at Dumbarton, Scotland.
A solid entry of 18 bands is scheduled to compete in the Grade 1 contest, and, for many of them, including reigning World Champions House of Edgar-Shotts & Dykehead, the Scottish will be their debut contest of 2004.
For the first time in recent memory, there are more bands entered in Grade 1 than in Grade 2, with only 17 vying for prizes in the penultimate grade.
The Scottish Championships will help to answer questions raised over the winter:
