The third in our series of performances by Grade 1 pipe band leaders features Pipe-Major Doug MacRae and Leading-Drummer Drew Duthart of the 78th Fraser Highlanders. MacRae and Duthart were one of the four duos who played at the annual Pipes+Drums Recital at the 2012 Piping Live! Glasgow International Festival of Piping.

The two were joined by bass drummer Johnny Rowe and tenor drummer Matt Bellia, providing an mini-band effect.

The Pipes+Drums recitals are designed to showcase the talents of the leaders of the world’s top pipe bands, with an eye to demonstrating how they work together musically. Just days before the World Pipe Band Championships, the players and their instruments are in top form. The musical relationship between pipe-major and leading-drummer dictates much of the band’s overall ensemble integration.

This year’s recital series was the second, and previous performances available online are:

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.
