The Band, Pipes and Drums, of the Royal Regiment of Scotland, will perform a concert in aid of the Army Benevolent Fund (ABF “The Soldiers Charity”), in the Unionist Hall, Enniskillen, tomorrow evening, Friday the 3rd October at 8pm.
The Bandmaster, Warrant Officer Class One Phil Wood said “We’re really looking forward to coming to Enniskillen, and especially the warm Fermanagh welcome that we know awaits us”.
Established to assume the traditional roles of the Bands of the Scottish Infantry Regiments, the band supports the Army and the State at all ceremonial occasions that occur in Scotland, including Garden Parties, state banquets and Guards of Honour at Holyrood Palace, Edinburgh and Stirling Castles, and Balmoral.
In addition to home commitments, the band has lost no time in asserting itself as a leader within the world of military music, routinely featuring as a mainstay of the world-renowned Edinburgh Military Tattoo. As a result, they are in constant demand for festivals in diverse locations such as Malaysia, Switzerland, China, Italy, Bermuda and Germany. Although The Band of the Royal Regiment of Scotland has existed only since the formation of the Regiment in 2006, it inherits a tradition which disappears into the mists of antiquity.
The band has swiftly established a name for diversity and is one of the Corps of Army Music’s main proponents of Soul, Folk and Scottish Country Dance as well as boasting Edinburgh’s premier Dance Band, as well as hard working Fanfare Trumpets and various chamber ensembles.
