Once again we bring pipers and drummers highlight videos to keep the fires burning over the long off-season in the northern hemisphere, and invigorating practice in the hot summer in the antipodes.

We start the series with Leading-Drummer Jake Jørgensen and Pipe-Major Neil Hall of the Grade 1 Lothian & Borders Police Pipe Band, who performed at the pipes|drums-sponsored Pipes+Drums Recital at the 2012 Piping Live! Glasgow International Piping Festival, where we brought four duos of some of the world’s best pipe band leaders.

Under Hall and Jørgensen, the Lothian & Borders Police rose up the competitive ranks in 2012, attracting new players and reinvigorating one of the world’s most historic bands.

We hope that you enjoy and are energized in your off-season (or on-season, for that matter) by these virtuoso performances!

Stay tuned to pipes|drums for more HD video from our 2012 Pipes+Drums event.

TIP OF THE DAY
Pipers: When your bag is too big, it tends to slip, produces pressure on your left arm and in general will detract from your ability to play.
