Twelve Thousand Miles is the distance between New Zealand and Scotland, and the distance many of our ancestors travelled over 150 years ago on a one way voyage in search of a new life. Ultimately, Twelve Thousand Miles is the distance the Band must now travel to ply its trade against the Worlds best. It is also the spread of membership across the globe, spanning two hemispheres, three continents and six countries.
In early 2009 the band recorded its second album which was released in the Southern Hemisphere at the New Zealand Pipe Band Championships, March 2009. The album was realeased twelve thousand miles away in the Northern Hemisphere at the 2009 Piping Live Festival, Glasgow.

During the last quarter of 2002 and in the early weeks of 2003 the band was working hard to produce its first formal recording. In association with Mr Murray Blair of Melbourne Australia, and Marmalade Studios in Wellington New Zealand, the recording is for sale through band members and selected retail outlets within New Zealand or through Greentrax overseas.
Demand for the album, titled “The Calling” has been phenomenal with the first production run sold out and a second run almost sold out. This exciting album has appeal not only for lovers of pipe band music, but also to those with broader interests in Celtic music.
