HAVING A CHAT HERE THE BLEND OF PIPES & WHISKY
CAN I JUST SAY; for readers not in a band, many think the bands get paid. Well in truth, the bands need to pay for their coaches to get them about and its no cheap, band members DO NOT get paid by the band, they do it because they love to play! away for up to 10 hours JUST FOR FUN! So next time you see pipe bands, please be aware of what they go through to entertain you. Maybe offer to buy pipers or drummers a drink or at least say thanks for coming, nice to see you etc. Now, when you all go to enjoy the Worlds, remember too, the bands from abroad have paid airfares and digs here - for the love of playing! Paul McLean. Wee note; any prize money goes to the kitty.

"We the Grandfather Mountain Highlanders Pipe Band were in Scotland for the 2010 Worlds and booked McLean. The bus was there when we arrived from USA at Glasgow Airport the driver took us to the University of Strathclyde. We had the bus booked to take us to North Berwick, Bridge of Allen and the Worlds, our driver was fantastic and very helpful. Then at the end of our trip he picked us up and took us back to Glasgow Airport. We have used other bus companies iBUT none had the high standard we received. It was like we had our own personal limo. Hope this helps you decide to go with Paul McLean." KS.
