PiggeryBrae - the name


Folk Band


Webmaister ......

"In Cambuslang, South Lanarkshire, Scotland, 
there is a back road known locally as Piggery Brae
it runs into East Greenlees Road.


One evening our group were discussing a name for the band...
Fergi digressed and spoke of his courting days at the PiggeryBrae...
PIGGERY BRAE....now there's a name said I ....
we all laughed.....and PiggeryBrae it was!"
 


In 1558, the Hamiltons of Schawfield sold the land of East Greenlees to John Mayne, Goldsmith, Burgess of the City of
Glasgow. There were houses built from the 17th century, the photograph below dates from the 1890's showing one of the old thatched houses....in Piggery Brae

  Hugh left the band in April 2003 and was replaced by Ian in October 2003 and since then we have kept that 4 piece set-up. PiggeryBrae concerts are all about music, fun and laughter and all donations to us go to various charities, which can be seen on our charity webpage
