«The Cockney Jocks» is one of the most famous marches of our time for the Scottish bagpipe. Being written by John Heinz in 1956, this march has acquired huge popularity and became an important part in repertoire of the overwhelming number of Scottish bands in the world. These notes — the original version, signed by the author especially for our orchestra. Also, John has kindly agreed to become an editor of the English version of our site.
«Pipes & Drums of St. Petersburg» expresses gratitude to John Hines for creative support!
John Heinz, author of the famous march «The Cockney Jocks», has made a magnificent gift to «Pipes & Drums of St. Petersburg». This gift is a beautiful march by John himself called «The St.Petersburg Pipe Band». From now on, this march will be the official hymn of the orchestra.
Thank you very much, John!
