MUSIC: The City of Whyalla Pipe Band will bring the Sounds of Scotland to the Central Whyalla Football Club in October.

Central Football Club will again echo to the stirring sounds of Scottish music when the City of Whyalla Pipe Band presents its annual concert, Sounds of Scotland, with a mix of traditional favourites and new items in October.

Guest local musicians Tom Hanna, Phyllis Branson, Lee Hayhurst and Terry O’Brien, will join with the band’s pipers and drummers featuring flute, tin whistle, guitar, Bodhran and bongo drums, keyboard and kit drums adding a new dimension to the program.

The Whyalla Singers will also make a return appearance.

Pipe Major John McIntosh is hoping for another packed audience on October 6 at 7.30pm following last year’s sell-out 50th anniversary concert.

One of many highlights will be Mr McIntosh’s granddaughter, Caitlin Mikutta, from Adelaide, performing as a vocalist.

“You don’t have to be Scottish or of Scottish decent, just someone who enjoys pipe music and wants an exceptional night out,” he said.

“Just come along, bring your favourite supper, enjoy bar refreshments, and relax with a great range of music.”

Earlybird priced tickets at $10 are available from Tom Clelland, phone 0429 184 077, or Phill Stone, phone 0477 779 993.
