Welcome to the LBPS
The 2012 Annual Collogue of the LBPS proved to be as exciting a day as it had promised.
The morning's talks by Will Lamb, Mike Katz and David Taylor were stimulating and entertaining; a full report will be included in the December issue of Common Stock. The afternoon's entertainment consisted of performances on pipes and fiddle by a remarkable line-up of players assembled by Hamish Moore. Recordings and videos are now being edited [currently around 15GB of files!]
Here for starters is a William Dixon tune given a 21st century make-over by Callum Armstrong and Pete Stewart.

Awards will be considered on April 13th and should be submitted to arrive by Friday, March 29th
