Press Releases Flute Bands Accordian Bands Pipe Bands

 The majority of our bands would fall into this group. The sharp clear note of the flute has been heard on our streets for many years now, and will hopefully continue for many more.

Although not as prolific as the flute bands, the accordian, and squeezebox has a following in the institution, ably playing many of the hymns which  bring back memories to most people of their youth. They are also prone to playing protestant songs which would be all but forgotten if not for the bands.

The pipes are for some the true sound of the Scott’s Irish, and highlight the link between the North of Ireland and their Scottish neighbours.

Great skill and patience is required to play both the pipes and the distinctive rolls which the drummers are required to master.
