As principal sponsor of the Field Marshal Montgomery Pipe Band, R. G. Hardie & Co were delighted to celebrate with the band in their triumph at the World Pipe Band Championships in Glasgow on 16th August 2014. It marked FMM’s 4th straight win in a row, and the band’s 10th win overall since 1992. In the past 30 years, no other pipe band has dominated the prize list like FMM.
Several of the FMM pipe corps’ top players, pictured here, play Peter Henderson® Bagpipes, made by R. G. Hardie & Co. If for nothing else, the FMM corps is renowned for its unbeatable sound quality and robustness.
“We are so proud that our Peter Henderson® Bagpipes contribute to FMM’s world-renowned sound,” said Alastair Dunn, Managing Director of R.G. Hardie & Co and Pipe Sergeant of the Field Marshal Montgomery Pipe Band. “Thanks to their rich, resonant drone sound, Peter Henderson® and R. G. Hardie Bagpipes® can be a top soloist instrument and, as we see here, an excellent band instrument as well.”
