Pipe Bands from Awa'

Didn't know there was a Czestochowa Pipe Band did you? Well, there is. Mike Fieschko found an interview with their pipe major and one of their pipers on the occasion of the the band's visit to Scotland to honour their friends in the Mid Argyll Pipe Band and sent the link along to me. You can find it here.

The caption at the top of the page says it is Poland's only pipe band. This is technically true in one sense, as a minimum of six pipers are needed to field a competition pipe band. But the three (now four?) pipers left in the Gdansk Pipe Band are still carrying on as this website explains.

Thanks for the link, Mike. I enjoyed following it up.
