Gilnahirk Pipe Band

Formed 1919

Gilnahirk Presbyterian Church Autumn Fair 2013

Risking autumn showers for the fourth year in succession, members of the Band performed again at the Gilnahirk Church Fair in October.

The relationship between the Band and the Church grows ever closer. This year the Band was delighted to host a Burns Supper in the Hall which was fantastically well supported by the Congregation. Later in the year, the Church was kind enough to hold an evening service to facilitate dedication of the new uniforms. Combined with strong personal relationships with individuals in the Church, it makes for a warm engagement which the Band hopes will persist.

It is therefore a great pleasure to be able to play at the opening of the Fair and to "give a little back" that way. Forecasters were thankfully wrong and the performance was beneath threatening skies only. The Fair was as busy as ever and an appreciative crowd enjoyed the music as they prepared themselves for bargain hunting.

With the final official engagement for 2013 out of the way, thoughts for the Band turn back to preparations for 2014 - so if you fancy being part of our team for next year, get in touch!
