With Purpose is the new CD from the Grade 1 Dowco-Triumph Street Pipe Band of Vancouver, and pipes|drums readers can enjoy an exclusive preview-listen to four tracks from the album, courtesy of the band.

“It was hard to pick four samples, but we really feel you will enjoy these,” said Pipe-Major David Hilder, who continued with a sales pitch, “Buy the album now to hear the exciting opening track!”

“Farewell to Scotland”– here is a sample of some fresh 3/4 compositions that just feel like you have heard them before. Lots of fun to play. Composed by DTSPB players both past and current.

 

“The Parading of the MacDonalds” – one of the oldest known piobaireachds in the manuscript, this tune is lovely to play and listen to. We enjoyed presenting our shortened version of this lovely musical tune.

 

“Storming of the Bastille” – another Simon Blackshaw composition, this time played on small pipes. An exciting suite played by two talented young pipers in the band.

 

“All The Kings Men” – this Simon Blackshaw Suite is coupled with some really fun Middle Eastern rhythms composed by Ian Casselman. This truly is cultural fusion. We hope you enjoy.

The CD is expected to be commercially available in early-June from dealers and directly from the band.

 

We thank the Dowco-Triumph Street Pipe Band for providing this exclusive preview of With Purpose for pipes|drums readers.

TIP OF THE DAY
Make sure stocks are cleaned thoroughly and all excess seasoning is removed. Check this by either shining a light down them or for drone stocks align two at a time and you can check them both for seasoning residue.
