Standard-Examiner: Bagpipe Band at Ben Lomond High Marches to Its Own Beat

Meal ur naidheachd, Ben Lomond students!

Fantastic Standard-Examiner story today, wherein SE reporter Anna Burleson puts the focus on Ogden's amazing Ben Lomond High school Scottish bagpipe marching band.

Here's the lede:

OGDEN — The room was filled with loud, off-beat drumming and quiet fluting one afternoon in April as the Ben Lomond High School Bagpipe Corps practiced individually and in small groups.
Then, seemingly out of nowhere and with no perceptible cue, the group of drummers and pipers assembled, playing in harmony together.
The Ben Lomond Bagpipe Corps has been a longstanding staple at the school and its members, including lead piper and high school senior Joseph Richey, couldn’t be more proud.
“It’s a long-standing tradition, and I think it’s really cool,” he said. “I hope over the next few years we can grow it and get bigger and better carry on the tradition.”
