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.
