Renwick Named Pipe Major of Vale

Perth, Scotland – January 7, 2001 – Andrew Renwick has been officially elected the new Pipe Major of the MacNaughton’s Vale of Atholl Pipe Band, succeeding long-time leader Ian Duncan who resigned in November of last year.

It had been speculated that Renwick would be named to the post, after being interim Pipe Major after Duncan’s departure. Perhaps most well known outside of Scotland for the Gordon Duncan tune, “Andy Renwick’s Ferret,” Renwick has played with the Vale for over 15 years.

Renwick was elected in an extraordinary general meeting held today in Perth, where the band practices. He will hold the post for a term of three years.
