Summer Round Up

NP&D has had a busy summer!  We competed in two highland games in May, Smoky Mountain and Greenville.  We were a little disappointed after our performance in Maryville, but after a few tweaks we managed to place 1st at Greenville!  You can watch our performance here.

Needless to say, it was great to come home with this guy:

We played at a number of graduations this spring, including MBA and Lipscomb University.  Upcoming, we will march in the Nashville Hot Chicken Festival Parade on the 4th of July.  This fall we’ll be gearing up again for competition at Charleston and Stone Mountain. 

NP&D is going through a number of exciting transitions right now.  Because of fantastic growth in new players in the last few years, Nashville will field a Grade V band in addition to our Grade IV competition band.  This will allow some of our newer players to get competition experience as they continue to grow and improve.

Second, we are launching a new website and branding.  After 30 years in Nashville, we have a history here that we want to celebrate, and we hope that is reflected in our new look.

Finally, we have started this blog to share more updates with our community as we continue to preserve and develop Scottish culture and music here in Middle TN.  Come out and see us play this summer!
