2011 World Pipe Band Championships Winners

By edg - Posted on 14 August 2011

Yesterday saw the World Pipe Band Championships in Glasgow. The event was live webcast by the BBC around the world. This year's winners of the Grade 1 competition were top Northern Ireland Band, the Field Marshal Montgomery Pipe Band.

The band is the current Scottish and British Champions, and have been runners-up at last year's World Championships, and winners of the title in 2006, 2007, and now 2011.

The band's World Championship performance illustrates why it is such a musical force to be reckoned with a smooth and rolling rendition of a medley.
