Gerry Quigg: the pipes|drums Interview – Part 2

Published: May 31, 2011

We continue our frank and candid conversation with Gerry Quigg, an unsung innovator of pipe band music responsible, in many ways, for introducing new musical idioms to traditional pipe band music. In Part 2, Quigg discusses famous pipe band people lifting his ideas and accepting credit for them, the genesis of the 78th Fraser Highlanders Pipe Band, his regrets about leaving that band and the current state of pipe band music. We also include a rare recording of the City of Toronto Pipe Band’s “MacIntosh’s Lament” medley, performed in competition at the Toronto Indoor Games in 1977. Exclusively for subscribers to pipes|drums magazine.
