DTSPB at the 2017 BC Indoor Contest
Saturday the 15th of April saw the band compete for the first time under the new leadership of P/m David Hilder and D/s Gary Corkin. In an event watched worldwide via the fantastic coverage the band sponsors on livestream, Simon Fraser University Pipe Band ran out winners on the day. Dowco Triumph Street finished in 2nd place in both the Medley and March, Strathspey and Reel sections.
The band were extremely pleased with the progress made over the winter, and the subsequent performances at the event, and we were also delighted to be able to showcase one of our two new medleys for 2017, “Atlantic Air Medley” which saw us tie in piping with Simon Fraser University. We’ve added a video below for your to have a listen.
Our congratulations go to Simon Fraser for winning the event, and our attention now turns to the British Championships, held in Paisley, Scotland on the 20th of May. This event will see DTSB compete against 15 of the very best bands in the world, and has representation from Scotland, Northern Ireland and Eire also.
We’d also like to sincerely thank our sponsors at Andante Percussion and Jordan Bailie for their support as this was our first performance using these products.
