Not even a General Election could stop the Barbados Celtic Festival.

Organisers made some changes to the programme, and the second annual Pipers Parade went off without a hitch at Hastings Rocks, Christ Church, much to the delight of both locals and visitors.

Last year, the collaboration of Scottish pipers and drummers, the Barbados Defence Force Band and the Royal Barbados Police Force Band was held in Bridgetown.

Lieutenant Brian Cole, director of music of the BDF band, said both the local and Scottish groups experimented with playing each other’s traditional music during the cultural exchange, while Iain Lowther said the Scots were pleased to be in Barbados and were exploring a joint venture. (SAT)
