Taking the ‘Bruce’ to the crowds in Hofheim!

A small contingent of Stirling & District Schools Pipe Band rocked up and nailed it in Hofheim, Germany last week as they helped take Alan MacDonald’s ‘Bruce 700’ on the road.

Along side the composer himself,  and several members of the original performance, including Kathleen MacInnes and Griogair Labhruidh, the band played to a sold out auditorium of over 900 enthusiastic Germans and ended the night to a full house standing ovation.

Several members of the Hofheims Dudelsack Akademie joined the pipers in rehearsals and on stage, and were more than impressed with the bands high levels of professionalism and talent, openly recognising the sheer commitment it takes to get there.
