OK, I did find some art, in the end!rspba-logo

BBC Alba are showing the World Pipe Band Championships, featuring bands from Ireland, New Zealand, Canada and, of course, Scotland. Broadcast from Glasgow, the 12 Finalists belted out their finest Pipe ‘n’ Drum tunes.

Won by the Northern Irish “Field Marshal Montgomery Band” for the third year running, there was a fantastic display of music!

Now, I’m no connoisseur of bagpipe music, but I thought tonight’s performance was very good! And if a bunch of guys in skirts blowing into sheeps innards while their mates bash at stretched pig skins isn’t Art, then my name’s not Mary Pickford!
