Breezy Pipes And Drums Perform In World Music Fests
A group of 35 pipers and drummers from the Breezy Point Pipes and Drums Band participated in one of the largest mass bagpipe events on August 21. The band, led by Terrance Williams, paraded down the streets of Edinburgh, Scotland along with 400 other bands representing 26 countries in Pipefest 2005. As a grand finale, all of the bands will play together as one mass collective.
Some of the participating families will continue their trip to Letterkenny in County Donegal, Ireland to participate in the 54 Annual Fleadh Cheoil (a Festival of Music) from August 22-28. About 20,000 musicians are expected to participate in the event.
