Peoples Ford Boghall & Bathgate Caledonia Pipe Band are one of the most storied Pipe Bands in history and have enjoyed success performing across the globe in concert and in the competition arena for over four decades.
Lead by Pipe Major Ross Harvey and Leading Drummer Gordon Brown the band operates at the very highest level in Pipe Band competitions in grade one. They have enjoyed significant success over the years winning major titles including the European and the Cowal Championships, amongst many others.
An important factor in the band‘s ability to maintain its presence in the top grade has been the continuity of players in the band with some of the Grade 1 members having played with Boghall for over 25 years. New players joining the Grade 1 band, either from the Juvenile band or from outwith the organisation are able to draw on the vast experience of these players and quickly appreciate what it takes to perform the ‘Boghall way’.
We are extremely proud of the band’s continued involvement in teaching piping and drumming to the youngsters of the local area and beyond. The organization is renowned throughout the pipe band world for the amount of time and effort it dedicates to tuition and the value of this is clear to see through the success of our Juvenile and Novice Juvenile bands.
Peoples Ford Boghall and Bathgate Caledonia Pipe Band will have a quartet of pipers performing at Piping Live! as part of the Quartet Competition, subject to covid restricitons lifting to allow group rehearsals.
