The Islay Pipe Band had a fantastic year and the band has been promoted to Grade 2. This was a magnificent achievement by the band, and well deserved for all the hard work over the years, starting at grade 4b and now in the lofty heights of Grade 2. Everyone who has played for the band over the years has helped the band get to where it is today!
