PM Craig Lang

Craig returned to MAPB in 2010 as pipe sergeant. He had a period with Inveraray Juvenile PB and then a sabbatical before Struan Thorpe persuaded him to return to Mid Argyll (his first band). Craig led the band out at the finals of the 2012 Scottish Championships where we took 6th place in our grade. He was elected as the current Pipe Major in November 2012 and led Mid Argyll to 6th place in the British Championships and 5th at Cowal in his first season as Pipe MajorĀ  - as well as several more prize winning places since then.
