So much doom and gloom around at the moment time to change the tone a little and listen some of these pipe bands I still love to hear the pipe bands.

BBC - Music - World Pipe Band Championships 2011


The Field Marshal Montgomery Pipe Band is Northern Ireland's premier Grade One pipe band. Current Scottish and British Champions, the band were runners-up at last year's World Championships, and winners of the title in 2006 and 2007. The band has won over 40 major championship titles and claimed the world title six times, and in 20 years has never been out of the top six at a Grade One major championship, which makes for 99 consecutive major prize-winning performances going into the 2011 Worlds.
