They were two days to remember, and we bring pipes|drums Magazine subscribers a special two-day photo feature from the 2013 World Pipe Band Championships held August 17-18, 2013, at Glasgow Green, Glasgow.

Among the bands hardest hit were Simon Fraser University, Inveraray & District, the Toronto Police and, of course, Shotts & Dykehead, which was nearly blown off the park mid-way through their march, strathspey & reel. We hope that you enjoy these images from Saturday at the 2013 World's, which will be followed by a similar feature of photos from the Sunday . . .

TIP OF THE DAY
When practicing, take time to listen to your band outside the circle. It helps to analyze the musicality from a different perspective.
