I posted an e-mail vis 'Gorbals Live'. It was just to inform you that I attend chanter lessons in 1955 at St Francis. The instructor was a guy called Sandy. Although I was 8 years old I remember he had some fingers missing due to to the war. He was nevertheless, a great teacher and taught us to read music. Does any one remember him?

James J Moran My father and son of drum sergeant James Moran founder along with Dan Keenan of the band died today 3rd may 2008 in Ireland aged 83 years we will be bringing him home to his beloved Glasgow on 8th May.His father (my grandfather) was the drum instructor in 1926 if you look at the photo he is the man on the right.My father often talked of the boys coming round his house above the boundary bar Springburn where they practised on an old chest every sunday afternoon. Can anyone out there add to this story? I wanted him to write the story down but sadly he didn't.

I was delighted to discover the site and to see I got a mention as "Gadget" (don't ask, it's along story)in the roll call. I played in the band (bass drummer) from the late 1960's through to 1971 alongside 2 of my cousins, Jimmy Cleary and Kevin McCole. Some other names from the time - Charlie Feely, James Moran, Junior McLoughlin, Tam O'Donahue. I'm sure I've got some photos somewhere from one of the May Processions - must dig them out. It's great to see that the band is thriving.
