Stuart Liddell and Steven McWhirter: Pipes+Drums Recital 2013

For those in the northern hemisphere, the nights are fair drawing in and winter approaches, so it’s time to start this year’s series of Hot Stove League videos, beginning with the performance by Inveraray & District Pipe-Major Stuart Liddell and Leading-Drummer Steven McWhirter.

The duo performed at the 2013 Pipes+Drums Recital at the Piping Live! Glasgow International Festival of Piping, sponsored by pipes|drums Magazine on the morning of Tuesday, August 13th, the day before the band would perform its sold-out “Ascension” show at the Glasgow Royal Concert Hall.

Liddell and McWhirter barely made the Pipes+Drums recital due to delays on the roads to Glasgow coming from the village of Inveraray on Scotland’s west coast. Or maybe Stuart slept through his alarm.

The two are probably the most accomplished pipe band leaders in their competitive solo work. Liddell has won just about all of the major piping awards, and McWhirter has so far gained four World Solo Drumming Championships, including this year’s event.

We hope that you enjoy this exclusive pipes|drums video of two virtuoso players at the absolute height of their game.

TIP OF THE DAY
Play each two-bar-phrase in a jig like a strathspey – accent pattern Strong, Weak, Medium, Weak. It will transform your tune musically.
