East Ayrshire Pipe Band Academy (EPIC) Launch Concert Absolutely Awesome!...

Last evening I joined other local elected members, including Sharon Dowey MSP at the EPIC East Ayrshire Pipe Band Academy and Kilmarnock Pipe Band Concert at Cumnock Town Hall.

EPIC (East Ayrshire Pipe Band Academy) started teaching across Cumnock and Doon Valley region in 2018 to address the imbalance of provision of music tuition in the area.

They set up as a registered charity, and fundraise to provide chanter and drum clubs across the region. The project leaders are a Royal Conservatoire of Scotland graduate who hails from Cumnock, and the Founding Director of the National Youth Pipe Band of Scotland , so the students are learning from the best!

'You could see that a lot of hard work had gone in to preparing for last evenings concert, the youngsters had had a summer school the whole week before which had brought pipers and drummers together for the first time to form a band.'

'Well done to all the EPIC East Ayrshire Pipe Band Academy performers, who are definitely EPIC and extremely awesome, and to the Kilmarnock Pipe Band, for an extremely enjoyable evening.'
