LINVILLE, NC (828) 733-8962

Everything Scottish - Linville
Harvey Ritch (828) 733-1399 hritch@everythingscottish.com

The Grandfather Mountain Highlanders Pipe Band was founded in 1974 by Agnes MacRae Morton and Harvey E. Ritch. (Harvey had previously founded the Charlotte Scottish Pipe Band, a prize winning grade ll band with a World Champion drum corps – see below) This new Grandfather group consisted of young, but very dedicated, players. Within two years, they earned the title of Southern Champions by winning at the Stone Mountain Highland Games. Since then, the band has won this title many times and they are the current Southern Pipe Band Champions. Recently, the band placed 2nd at the 2003 North American Pipe Band Championships in Maxville, Ontario.

Harvey Ritch was the band's first Pipe Major and served in this capacity until 1981. Ken Swinton served as Pipe Major from 1981 until 1983, and led the band to a victory at Stone Mountain. Ed Krintz then became Pipe Major and took the band to a new level. In 1985, the band won nearly every contest they played and was upgraded to Grade II in 1986. Bill Caudill then assumed Pipe Major duties as Ed was relocated for his job. After two successful seasons, Ed resumed the leadership role until the Grade IV and Grade III bands merged in 1994. Scott McLeod then became Pipe Major and led the band successfully from Grade IV back to Grade III. Gordon Warburton became Pipe Major in 1996 and currently holds the position.

Harvey Edward Ritch, 86, of Linville, and formerly of Charlotte, died Sunday, June 8, 2014, of natural causes.

Harvey was born in Charlotte to Ruby Ritch and Paul Ritch. He was preceded in death by his oldest son, Harvey Edward Ritch Jr., and is survived by his former wife, Nancy Ritch, his three living sons, David Randall Ritch, Joseph Livingston Ritch and Robert Scott Ritch, his sister, Jean Christ, his brother Paul Ritch Jr., and seven grandchildren.

The funeral for family and close friends is scheduled for 1 p.m. Saturday, June 21, 2014. Harvey was well known in the Scottish Community for his work with many bagpipe bands and as the owner of Everything Scottish. A public ceremony will be held Sunday, July 13, 2014, at the church service at the Grandfather Mountain Highland Games.

June 9, 2014. Harvey Ritch, longtime owner of Everything Scottish in Linville, passed away at 5:45 a.m. Sunday, June 8, in Newland at age 85. Ritch’s shop, one of the nation’s first Scottish import shops and a landmark of High Country Scottish culture, closed last February after a remarkable 43 years in business.

Ritch and his shop were more than just part of the local business community. Called “the High Country’s Pipe Major,” Ritch has founded a number of pipe bands, trained dozens of award-winning pipers, and played a major role in the growth of Scottish culture in the High Country, the South, and the nation. In 1973, Ritch accepted the invitation of Highland Games co-founder Agnes MacRae Morton, and her son Julian, to open Everything Scottish in the stone tower that still dominates the “Invershiel intersection” at the corner of NC 105 and 184.

Ritch founded the award-winning Grandfather Mountain Highlanders Pipe Band. Those affiliated with the band have called Ritch, “the forefather of piping in the South.”

In many ways, the number of pipe bands seen today in the region, and the quality of play, can be traced back to Ritch. His personal tutoring of students, and even financial support for formal training programs has benefited many pipe bands and players and fledgling highland games as well.

He left a desire for his ashes to be scattered atop MacRae Meadows’ track during the Highland Games — “so when they march on the track they will get dust in their eyes ... they will rub their eyes and say, 'Damn you, Harvey!'

FROM DAVE GRAHAM March 2013
I believe that John Barrie Whitton born 31 mar 1832 to Thomas Whitton and Susan Glen is the same as the John Whitton who died at Mill Cottage in Dunblane 15 Dec 1878. It is true that his death certificate states that his mother was Jane Peacock but I believe this was his grandmother who married his grandfather Robert Whitton. Why do I believe this? (1) There is no record of a marriage between Thomas Whitton and Jane Peacock; (2) John (Barrie) Whitton died in Dunblane which was the home to one of Elizabeth Graham’s brothers, Andrew Graham, at this time. Why would he go there instead of Bervie or some other location in Angus where his own family lived?; (3) His death certificate has no living relatives listed on it giving credence to the thought that he may have had papers, or a bible that had his grandmother [Jane (Peacock) Whitton] in it. The lack of family certainly opens the data to some potential errors. (4) Mill Cottage was not far from High Street where Andrew Graham and family lived.

While there is no definitive proof of my claim, you and I both know that census and death entries have numerous ‘inconsistencies’ in the supplied data. I truly think this is case here. I am confident that the John Whitton that died 15 Dec 1878 in Dunblane and listed as widower to Elizabeth Graham, was the same John Barrie Whitton born to Thomas Whitton and Susan Glen (not Joanna or Jane Peacock) in Montrose 31 Mar 1832.

Chris Tanton

Chris grew up in Marietta, Georgia and was immersed in the baseball culture that makes Cobb County famous for most of his upbringing. It was baseball that led Chris to Berry College for college, earning a scholarship to pitch at Berry. It was during his time there that Chris became a Christian, beginning his relationship with Jesus around the time of his 21st birthday. After college, Chris was hired to teach at Mount Paran Christian School in Kennesaw, Georgia. Once again it was baseball that was a big part of leading Chris down the path God had chosen. He began climbing the coaching ladder, working his way towards becoming a varsity head coach, or so he thought. God started to plant a seed that something seemed off, and that maybe this wasn’t the path he was meant to pursue. Through lots of prayer and discussion with Abby, he decided to walk away from that pursuit and focus more on pursuing God. It was a natural fit to coach the middle school baseball program, where the focus could be more on relationship building and investing in players rather than wins and losses. Through a fundraiser that was organized in the spring of 2011 for the middle school baseball program at Mount Paran, Chris was introduced to the FCA ministry in the Dominican Republic. His middle school team organized a charity round robin tournament and raised $400, which was donated to The Holt Rowland Foundation. This led Chris to meet Bob Wiedemann, who was a local FCA representative at the time and was leading trips to the Dominican Republic for baseball ministry. Bob helped Chris see the value in short term ministry and encouraged Chris to join the team for the next summer’s trip. The spiritual warfare leading up to that trip was intense for Chris, and now in retrospect it seems clear as to why. That first week was life changing for him, and left a huge mark on the way he was pursuing God, the way he was coaching and mentoring, and his desire to invest in the lives of others. Little did he know that God was thinking of something a little bigger a few years down the road. Over the next few years, Chris continued visiting the Dominican. The next summer, he took another FCA trip with a great team, and then started visiting without teams to partner with the FCA ministry directly and invest in the missionaries that were on the island full time. The desire to be immersed in the Dominican culture and serve the people there continued growing stronger, and Chris asked God for clarity on if they were meant to move. In October 2014, they took another trip down and asked God for a clear yes or no response on whether it was time to pursue leaving. The answer was not yes or no, it was “not yet”. Chris believed that perhaps it was time to transition out of a teaching role, and thought maybe God was leading him to a local ministry position working with missions or youth groups. But over the last 3 months of 2015, God made it completely clear that it was time to pursue coming to the D.R. After meetings with many of the board of directors of The Rowland Foundation, Chris and Abby knew it was God’s timing to send them, and specifically to Boca Chica. They committed to make the transition at the end of 2015.
