The Band is delighted to announce that a number of new pipers have joined the pipe corp for the 2017 season, including first-class solo piper Callum Brown. Also joining are Katrina Brown, Neil Mitchell and Alastair Edwards. Callum is a highly talented solo piper, regularly featuring in the prize-lists around the Scottish solo competitions, winning Pipe Idol in 2014. Callum says "it's great to be joining Bucksburn at this exciting time during the Band's 70th year. My father played with the Band during the 70's and 80's and I fell honoured to play in the same organisation as him". Katrina is a Level 7 PDQB player from St Andrews. Neil is a well-established player from Culter and Alastair, from Fraserburgh, is also following in the footsteps of his father Duncan who too played with the Band.
