The Mearns Leader and Kincardineshire Observer reported on the pipe band’s first event which was the Gourdon Fish and Folk Festival in 1995.
The group was known as the Craigmaroinn Pipe Band and didn’t even have uniforms.
The group were not deterred though and decided to wear shorts and shades to the fish and folk festival.
Our paper has covered numerous events for the pipe band over the years including the Vintage Rally and Johnshaven Fish Festival, watching some of the members grow over the past 20 years.
