Wake & District would like to extend our congratulations to Pipe Major Richard Parkes MBE and the men and women of the Field Marshal Montgomery Pipe Band who were crowned World Pipe Band Champions on 11 August 2012 in Glasgow – Scotland.  Only two members of Wake & District were on hand in Scotland watching the competitions (Jean and Seamus Russell) while the rest of the band watched streaming video from Glasgow Green at Tir Na nOg.

Congratulations to all the bands who competed on Glasgow Green including several bands from the United States of America. Video of all the Grade 1 performances can be seen here >> http://www.bbc.co.uk/music/events/edvg9r/videos
