Torphichen & Bathgate announces November concert

The Torphichen & Bathgate Pipe Band of Scotland will unveil new music that integrates Australian Aboriginal music with the band at a concert in Irvine on November 19.

Booked for the Magnum Leisure Centre the concert promises to feature material composed by band members Chris Djuristchek and Pipe-Sergeant Stuart Robertson, including “The Curse of Uluru,” a suite composed by the two pipers. According to the band, the theme of the concert will “mix the ethnic sounds of the Aboriginals with the sound of the pipes.”

Robertson says that the suite makes use of the digeridoo, the traditional Aboriginal wind instrument, and the concert will feature guitar, keyboards, and percussion.

The concert will also unveil “The Torphichenettes,” but further information on that aspect was not immediately forthcoming.

Tickets will go on sale in August at a price of £10 and inquiries can be made to Stuart Robertson.
