Practice just before a big competion at the Lannark Pipe and Drum Festival. William on drums and Bobbie on pipes both gave spectacular performances.

My wife's father and late brother used to be in a pipe band in Tampa FL. I could never imagine wearing all that getup in the florida heat, but they seemed to manage. I do know that it takes a lot of time and effort.

Good shot. It capures the concentration of dedicated musicians.

Thanks Brian,

Yes the uniforms can be unbearable but at least they can catch a good breeze from time to time!!

These 2 are very dedicated to music. Bobbie went on as a teenager to compete in Scotland and did very well. William doesn't play with pipe bands anymore but the techniques he learned from that type of drumming shows in his rock drumming. Still dedicated and working on that big break. And yes, LOTS of hard work and concentration.

Thanks for the comments!

Too draughty? :roll:

I like how the kids in the background are oblivious to the musicians.
