We would like to welcome 2 new pipers to the Thistle Piping team. Mike Zanre (picture inset) & Struan Moffat (pictured above), both current members of the regions top ranked band, the Grampian Police Pipe Band. It’s been a very busy year at HQ meaning that Thistle boss Julie Brinklow has been on the look out for suitable Pipers to join the team.
I’m very proud of the team and the quality of musicians I have representing Thistle Piping. Mike & Struan are great additions and great guys who take their piping and musical reputation very seriously, just the type of values that all Thistle Piping’s players have. The addition of these 2 pipers to the team means that there is an enjoyable level of playing spread across the entire team. (J.Brinklow)
Mike Zanre has a considerable amount of experience in all area’s of piping and has played in some of the Worlds top Pipe Bands such as Shott’s & Dykehead. Struan Moffat, being Thistle Piping’s youngest piper has rocketed his way into Grade 1 and to solo success at the Northern Meeting where the worlds top soloists gather.
The 2 Pipers profiles will shortly be launched on the “Meet the Team” page on the website where you can read all about their musical history.
