Nov 23, Colombo: The Dollar Academy Pipers from Scotland are currently in Sri Lanka. The 10 piece band is in Colombo ahead of the National Day of Scotland "St. Andrew's Day" - celebrated each year on the 30th of November.

The Pipers will be performing at a series of events in Colombo, including at the St Andrew's Ball on 24th November and at the St Andrew's Scots Kirk on Galle Road on Sunday 26th November.

The Dollar Academy pipe band has won the Scottish Championship for thirteen consecutive years and competes in the Royal Scottish Pipe Band Association at juvenile and novice grade and in 2014 were crowned World Champions.
