Of course this means that Fraser McKenzie is retiring as lead side. I was surprised that Fraser had been lead side for 17 years. I assume he’ll continue as a player and run the NZ operations, much as Stuart Easton is doing with the pipers. Well done Fraser McKenzie.

There are about 14,000 kilometres between the United Kingdom and home-base, but the Grade 1 Manawatu Scottish Pipe Band of Palmerston North, New Zealand, continues to diversify its roster with the appointment of Graeme Parker to Lead-Drummer.
