Hyslop Marks Boghall and Bathgate Pipe Band 40th Anniversary
Local MSP, Fiona Hyslop marked the Boghall and Bathgate Caledonia Pipe Band’s 40th Anniversary on Friday (4th May) at a dinner in Whitburn’s Hilcroft Hotel by delivering the keynote speech.
“I am delighted to deliver the keynote speech to mark the 40th anniversary of such a significant piece of West Lothian’s culture.
“I am aware that many of the current members that are here today, were part of the pipe band some 25 years ago. This shows a band, who are not just in touch with, but dedicated to their roots and to each other.
“West Lothian has a strong sense of culture and Scottish Identity particularly within traditional music and it is fantastic to watch groups like the Boghall and Bathgate Caledonia Pipe Band flourish.”
