WAPOL back in Concert. February 23, 2013 23:42

After previous years of cancelled Concerts and functions, the WA Police Pipe Band have locked in the Quarry.. The pipe band community of WA are eager to hear the band under its new leadership, lets hope its a clear dry night.

The first major event for the Grade 1 Western Australia Police Pipe Band with recently appointed Pipe-Major James Murray in charge will be a concert on March 13th in Perth, recorded live for the group's ninth recording.

Murray became pipe-major late in 2012 after emigrating from Scotland, where he led the Grade 1 Fife Constabulary Pipe Band, which followed his long tenure with Shotts & Dykehead.

According to the band, Murray, the 1997 Argyllshire Gathering Highland Society of London Gold Medallist, has worked to pull together a diverse selection of material for the concert, visiting all genres of music, including "a mix of rock, jazz and folk."

Priced at AUS$40 a ticket, the concert will be at the natural Quarry Amphitheatre.
