Gilnahirk Pipe Band

Formed 1919

Burns Night 2011

The Band was pleased to be invited back to Willowfield Parish Church this year to participate in their excellent Burns Night, which is fast becoming a real fixture on the local cultural scene.

As usual, the Church was absolutely packed with ardent Ulster-Scots and the crowd greatly enjoyed the traditional haggis, neeps and tatties as they were treated to great singing from the Thompson Brothers.

Piper Stephen Jackson piped in the haggis at the start of the evening and the Band brought the evening to a conclusion with a few tunes from the stage. All in all the evening was a great success and Gilnahirk would like to thank George and all the folk at Willowfield for making us feel so welcome - hopefully we'll be back again in 2012!
