The Band were invited to a unique event, located at the remote Mount Stuart on the Isle of Bute in Scotland. We performed at the pre-wedding entertainment for a couple who had requested a Edinburgh Tattoo style show in the gardens of the house, see the photograph below. For the first time ever the band performed in kilts and glengarries! Performing alongside a pipe band, the spectacle wowed the wedding guests who were watching from high up on the house balcony. We'd like to thank our friends at Box Events for inviting us to take part! (link)
