Pipe Bands in Rozelle Park
Rozelle Park in Alloway, Ayr is the venue for many events and activities including Scottish Pipe Band championships.
The most common form of pipe band, the Scottish pipe band, consists of a section of pipers, a section of snare drummers (often referred to as 'side drummers'), several tenor drummers and a single bass drummer. The entire drum section is known collectively as the drum corps. The tenor drummers and bass drummer are referred to collectively as the 'bass section' (or in North America as the 'midsection'). The band follows the direction of the pipe major and when on parade the band may be led by a drum major, who directs the band with a mace.
