We had the privilege of connecting with Glen Moyer today, producer of Under The Tartan Sky, an excellent podcast series of all things Scottish. He has graciously donated a gorgeous pendant toward our raffle and to support our fundraising efforts as we travel abroad to Scotland this summer! This newly added raffle item is hand-crafted of a blue jewel stone and set in sterling silver on a silver chain, made by Christine Sadler with Unforgettable Jewelry of Ayr, Scotland!
We are thrilled to announce one of our raffle items for our upcoming Scotland Send-Off Show - a bespoke piece of Texas-shaped Tartan artwork custom made for our event! We have partnered with Scottish Artist Tessa Palmer, who lives in the Scottish Highlands, and creates meaningful modern artwork mixing the beautiful and unique woolen texture and assorted colors of Scotland’s renowned tartan fabric with any geographical or meaningful shape relevant to her clients.
Friends and Fans of Silver Thistle!
We are excited to announce our Scotland Send-Off Exhibition Show at The Austin Beer Garden Brewery.
Join us July 6th at 5:30p at ABGB as we perform our two competition sets as our final practice before we travel to Scotland where we will represent Austin, Texas in the The World Pipe Band Competition in SCOTLAND this August 2019.
For the last several months we have been working hard perfecting our competition sets for The World Pipe Band Championships on Glasgow Green in Scotland in August.
We welcome you to come out to our next practice (it’s free!), Sunday, June 30 and enjoy the music (and the process!). We love spectators to help us “put the pressure on” and help get us ready. You can listen and find us at Bartholomew Park in East Austin anytime from 9a-12p.
