College at Carbisdale

March 23rd, 2008 Comments off

Wallace Bagpipes were the main sponsors of the highly successful week long College at Carbisdale in March organised by The College of Piping.

Below was the College Principal Robert Wallace thoughts on the week.

Our administrator, Paul Turner, did a marvelous job of organising things and we were honoured by the presence of Lord Thurso and other local dignitaries for the closing concert. I should also mention Niall Mathieson who is doing a terrific job teaching the kids in Ross and Cromarty. They have some outstanding young talent up there, Craig Mackenzie (a pupil of Louise Hay) and Duncan MacGillivray’s boys Michael and Andrew to name but three. Niall works tirelessly spreading the piping word in that part of the country. We are very grateful to Wallace Bagpipes for their sponsorship. The school was featured on Scottish Television north region news and I’m told clips can be accessed on their website for another few days – Wallace Bagpipes banner to the fore and rightly so.
