The SA Youth Pipe Band, in conjunction with the City of Adelaide Pipe Band last night held what was a very successful Ceilidh, with the proceeds going exclusively to the youth band.
The crowd was treated to a fantastic roast dinner & Dessert, with entertainment by the SA Youth Pipe Band, and Highland Dancing performances.
In addition, Amelia Chandra, a member of the SA Youth Pipe Band performed the Ground & First variation of Glengarry's lament, the same tune she won first place in the R.U. Brown Novice Piobaireachd contest earlier this year.
All in all, a good night was had, and we hope to see everybody (and more) at the Ceilidh next year!

The City of Adelaide Pipe Band would like to congratulate all three of them on what is a fantastic achievement, and we look forward to seeing them back at band practice in the not-too-distant future.
Brett Tidswell, Pipe Major of the City of Adelaide Pipe Band, has recently returned from a international tour, teaching pipers from the Boys Brigade Bands throughout Hong Kong.
Over the previous few years, Pipe Major Tidswell has conducted teaching tours through a number of countries including Singapore & Hong Kong imparting his decades of piping knowledge on the next generation of bandsmen.
This was the first time Brett had been invited to teach in Hong Kong, but all reports suggest that it was a productive week, and enjoyed by all.
We have no doubt that Brett will be back teaching the Boys Brigade bands next year.
