‘A fairly new band formed in 2004. As with all new contesting bands, we began our contesting career in the 4th section ... In 2017 the band came a creditable 4th out of 11 bands in the 3rd Section playing “Darkwood”; not bad for a band newly promoted ... We play a wide variety of musical styles ranging from classical to modern light rock / pop. We always endeavour to keep our entertainment programmes interesting and varied. The band employs a resident conductor to deliver professional musical direction for both contesting and general performances and it’s our ongoing aim always to be improving.‘

‘We are a group specialising in Gaelic work songs, particularly those sung by women while waulking the tweed. We are based in Greenock, Inverclyde ...  We are passionate about presenting our songs in the context for which they were designed. They are not concert pieces, but were sung to accompany work - spinning, milking, churning, reaping and grinding corn, as well as waulking the cloth, which forms the centrepiece of all our performances ... We currently have ten members (more always welcome!), and perform regularly at venues up and down the west of Scotland, with the occasional foray to the far east.’
