Last season for P-M Davidson at Greighlan

Graham Davidson has decided to retire as pipe-major of Grade 3 Greighlan Crossing of Surrey, British Columbia, Canada, after 14 years with the group, the entire history of the band that Davidson helped to found.

Greighlan Crossing has already started its search for a new leader to take over the competitively successful band.

“We wish Graham the very best in the future, however, we will greatly miss his direction and friendship,” the band said in a statement. “We are looking for a knowledgeable, musical, and creative person.”

Davidson was a member of the Grade 1 Triumph Street band in the 1970s and ’80s, and has been a significant presence on the British Columbia piping and drumming scene ever since.

Greighlan Crossing was formed in 2003 by Davidson and Len Leroux at the request of a graduate of the White Spot Pipe Band juvenile band, mainly because there was a lack of mid-level bands in the area. Greighlan Crossing has been a destination for many members of White Spot ever since.

The band has enjoyed several significant trips, including performing in China twice, and was winner of the British Columbia Pipers Association’s Grade 3 Grand Aggregate for the last three years.
