Pipeband in China: TV Spectacular

This is an amazing thing to watch. The Preston Lodge High School Pipe Band at the 19th Nanning International Folk Song Festival.

You should watch the first few minutes to get a sense of the magnitude of this event, a stadium audience of around 50000 and a massive TV audience – Scotmid are getting their monies worth from the sponsorship message on the bass drum!!

The show is around 2½ hours long but the section featuring our Pipe Band starts at around 01:44:00 with the band making their appearance around 01:47:30
