The Grade 1 Australia Highlanders not only will be competing at the World’s and Ulster pipe band championships in August, but the band will also officially release Australia Highlanders|without fear, a new compact disc that the band recorded in-studio in late-May.
 
The CD will be launched at Piping Live! in Glasgow on August 14th at 1 pm at the Street Café outside of the National Piping Centre on McPhater Street.
 
without fear is the band’s first recording since it changed its name from the Nunawading Pipe Band in 2006. The name is the translation of the band’s motto, “Sans peur.”
 
Exclusive to pipes|drums readers, the band has offered a free track from the album. The cut features two hornpipes: “Slim,” by Danny Boyle, the band’s pipe-major, and “Postcard Bandit” by Alisdair McLaren. “Slim” is the opening tune of the band’s 2008 medley that it hopes to perform in the Final of the World’s.

At the launch the band will perform tracks from the recording and sign copies of the disc. A limited number of promotional items will also be given away.
 
Boyle also reports that the Australia Highlanders have 23 pipers, eight snares, four tenors and a bass on the roster for the UK trip. The band has added several new members from various countries, including the United States, Canada, and Northern Ireland.

TIP OF THE DAY
Drummers: If rough passages aren’t clean a month before they need to be put on display – or show the potential to be – be prepared to swap in a more manageable version.
