MacDonald Back In As LA Scots Pipe Major
LA Scot’s lead drummer Carl Lenny left the band on October 28, and he was followed closely by that of almost the entire drum section. It is not yet known which band Lenny and his drummers will ultimately join, but it is thought that they will stay together as a unit.
Under Scott MacDonald’s leadership, LA Scots has become one of only two Grade 1 bands in the United States. The band was moved to the top grade by the Royal Scottish Pipe Band Association after it won the Grade 2 event at the World Pipe Band Championships in 1997 after several years finishing in the top three in the contest.
In 1999, LA Scots became the first US-based band to qualify for the Grade 1 final at the World Championships, but in 2000 failed to reach the last cut.
