Move back to sheepies confirmed – 10th September 2012
The band has been re-evaluating its sound this year. A number of different chanters, reeds and bag setups have been trialled. The result of this has been a decision to move back to the sheep skin bags. This will give the band a richer drone sound although there will be other challenges with the new setup to overcome.
The Sinclair chanters have again proved their superior sound quality and so a new set of these has been ordered. Although they probably won’t be ready for Square Day this year. Thanks to the Lion Foundation for their funding assistance which has allowed the band to make this purchase.
