Only hours after pipes|drums reported that the On The Day Box Set of three discs and other material was in jeopardy of not attracting its needed $20,000 advance donations, the Spirit of Scotland Pipe Band documentary project has surpassed the goal, and the product is officially a go.

As of noon on Tuesday, July 12th, the project had a shortfall of more than $1,600.

The advance payments came from supporters around the world who donated funds via the Kickstarter program in return for various goods and services, depending on the amount. Donations can continue until 3 am EDT Friday, July 15th.

On The Day highlights the 2008 Sprit of Scotland project in which many of the world’s top available pipers and drummers assembled to compete at the World Pipe Band Championships in a one-time effort that saw the band ultimately qualify for the Final and then go on to finish eleventh overall in Grade 1.

The Box Set includes a remastered version of the original On The Day DVD movie; a DVD  with more than three hours of outtake footage of members of the band; and a new CD of 19 tracks including 16 solo spots by Spirit of Scotland pipers, including Pipe-Major Roddy MacLeod, Alasdair Gillies and Angus MacColl.

TIP OF THE DAY
Pipers: The most important aspect of D-throws, grips, taorluaths and crunluaths is the first low-G. Concentrate on getting good depth to that and the rest will follow.
