Pre-Worlds Concert Announcement - Tickets on Sale Now!

The Glasgow Skye Association Pipe Band is delighted to confirm that St Laurence O’Toole Pipe Band will headline the 2018 ‘Pre-Worlds’ concert at the Glasgow Royal Concert Hall on Wednesday, 15th August 2017. 

“We are once again thrilled to host yet another of the world’s greatest pipe bands for the pre-Worlds concert,” said Kurt Mackintosh of the Glasgow Skye Association Pipe Band. “In addition to being one of the most entertaining and successful competing bands in recent times, St Laurence O’Toole Pipe Band are renowned for their concerts. It has been eight years since the band last took to the stage at our pre-Worlds concert and we have no doubt they will put on another fantastic show.”

Pipe Major Alen Tully commented " In 2010 we marked our 100 year anniversary by performing our much anticipated “Evolution” concert to a sell-out crowd. We are delighted to have been asked back by the Glasgow Skye Association Pipe Band for the 2018 showcase. “Turas Ceoil – Resume” will take our audience on a journey through the ages, paying homage to where we have come from a musical perspective right through to where we are today. We have a rich musical gene which runs both within the bands own history and through our Irish roots and we believe our show will really bring that to life. We can’t wait to take to the GRCH stage once again.
