The band is flying to France… Again! Last September the band performed in the beautiful village of Villa La Grand, just 30 minutes from Geneva. After impressing the locals we have been invited to return to the festival to put on another show. This year, there will be a collaboration between the Royal Burgh of Renfrew and Kilsyth Thistle Pipe Band in order to provide a group of 50 performers. Monthly group practices will ensure the larger band is on top form for the festival!
Plans for the band to perform at Spain’s famous folk festival held in Ortigueira are confirmed! The festival boasts some of the finest folk musicians in Europe as well as drawing crowds from around the world.
The band is flying out on the 17th of July for 6 days of music, dancing and partying.
Stay tuned for updates!
In July, the band returned for a second time to Schlitz, Germany for an excellent 5 day festival. The festival in Schlitz always brings together talented musicians and dancers from across the world and the band have now formally been invited to attend biennially.
Over the course of the weekend, the band sampled a variety of German beers, toured the local distillery three times and headlined the festival’s closing ceremony. Wunderbar!
It was great to meet up again with the friendly locals who were so hospitable two years ago and to take in all the culture that the town has to offer.
