Jim Hutton: the pipes|drums Interview from the Archives – Part 2 Published: October 31, 2011

We continue our publication of a February 2000 interview with Jim Hutton, one of history's important figures in pipe band drumming. The original interview had to be edited down to accommodate the now-antequated limitations on print publishing, and we provide the complete text here. Jim Hutton passed away in June of this year at the age of 75. For almost 70 years he led an incredibly active life in pipe bands as a player, teacher and adjuodicator. In Part 2 Hutton discusses the state of drumming at the time, the impact of players like Jim Kilpatrick on the scene, and several of the young bands and players of the time that he predicted would go on to great things. Exclusive to pipes|drums subscribers.

TIP OF THE DAY
Don’t practice what you don’t know. If you are unsure about something seek advice rather then play and practice something that could turn out to be wrong. It will be harder to correct.
