The Meeting of the Bands was a great success this weekend with the award winning St Laurence O’Toole Pipe Band joining local bands and performers for two days of events.
On Friday night the 2010 World Champions from Dublin played with Lewis Pipe Band, Skye Pipe Band, Uist Pipe Band and Sgoil Lionacleit Pipe Band at Lewis Sports Centre.
On Saturday, the bands headed for Harris where they played together at the Macleod Stone. In very blustery conditions, but with the sun shining, the bands marched to the Stone for the performance.
St Laurence O’Toole and the Lewis Pipe Band then headed for Callanish where they played again at the Stones. This time the weather conditions were not so favourable but the musicians continued to entertain the crowd.
The event closed with a concert in Lewis Sports Centre with performances from Face the West, Fiona Martin, Gaelic Choirs and Barra Dannsa followed by St Laurence O’Toole in concert.
