Thank you to Rab Lennox (The Big Rab Show) for taking the time to talk to Shotts Pipe Major Emmett Conway and Pipe Sergeant Graham Drummond.

The PM and PS discuss how the band is dealing with being in lockdown, continuing to strike a balance between hard work and social affairs (including weekly zoom quizzes) and keeping the momentum going into the winter and the impending 2021 season.

They talk about the band recruitment style and growing the experience of the young band, their most embarrassing moments in piping, and even their favourite cheeses!
