The COVID-19 pandemic resulted in the cancellation of the 2022 Glasgow (KY) Highland Games where the band typically competes each year, and it did so at a time when the growth members allowed for effectively fielding a Grade 5 and a Grade 4 band. We are very proud of our members who worked hard and committed to the 2020 and 2021 seasons and we look forward to fielding both bands in 2022. Pipe and drum on! Interested in getting on the field with us? Please email us for more information! [email protected]
NOTE: Due to the unfortunate weather approaching, the band will not be marching this year. However, we ask that you continue to plan on coming out to support the other participants.
