Steven Shedden retires and Grant Cassidy appointed new Drum Sergeant of the National Youth Pipe Band of Scotland.
Grant Cassidy has been appointed as the new Drum Sergeant of the National Youth Pipe Band of Scotland. He takes over the leading drummers role after Steven Shedden who has been the bands leading drummer since 2009 decided to step down from this position due to increased commitments. On behalf of all the members and staff at the NYPBoS I would like to thank Steven for all of his hard work, dedication and commitment since joining the project and we wish him all the best with his future endeavours and aspirations.
Grant comes into the position with a wealth of experience and knowledge for such a young musician and we’re sure that he’ll continue to further develop the drum corps into the future. The National Youth Pipe Band of Scotland’s Senior Drum Corps currently comprises of 13 snare drummers, 7 tenors and a bass.
