The National Youth Pipe Band of Scotland – the premier youth piping and drumming organisation in the world – is performing at the SECC Clyde Auditorium on Saturday, 30 November, at 3pm.
The National Youth Pipe Band is one of many youth arts programmes supported by Creative Scotland.
Accepting musicians up to the age of 25, the NYPB is the largest and most prominent non-competing youth pipe band in the world. The band draws its members from across the whole of Scotland, and includes pipers and drummers from many of the country’s top competitive pipe bands who perform with the NYPB in addition to their competitive commitments. The result is a world-class display of youth piping and drumming talent, and a creative mix of young people representing the very best Scotland has to offer. Many members of the Shotts and Dykehead Caledonia Pipe Band have come through the NYPB over the years, and many of its young current members are part of the current NYPB ensemble. Representatives of Shotts and Dykehead in the NYPB system include Louise Augaitis, Jenni Clark, Andrew Clark, Ailis Sutherland, Iain Crawford, Fraser McKinnon, Cameron Bennett, and Callum Cowan. Many of these members are in fact new to the Shotts band this autumn, and it’s great to see new Shotts members playing alongside established members with the NYPB this November.
