A PIPE band celebrated its 25th anniversary in style by recording a new album.

Members of the ScottishPower Pipe Band - from teenagers to pensioners - flocked to the Grand Ole Opry in Paisley Road, in Glasgow's South Side, to make music together.

Among those who helped to create a great atmosphere at the renowned venue was the group's Pipe Major, Chris Armstrong, who is based at the National Piping Centre in Cowcaddens.

The 13 pipers and eight drummers who attended were creating the album ahead of major events and competitions, including the World Pipe Band Championships, which are held at Glasgow Green.

The band is one of the world's leading Grade 1 pipe bands and has performed in countries ranging from America and Canada to Japan and China.

Among its highlights are appearances before the Queen at Braemar, the Pope at St Peter's Square in Rome, the Lord Mayor's Show in London and with Sir Paul McCartney at the SECC.

The band delighted crowds at the official opening of the Scottish Parliament and at the 75th Royal Variety Performance.
