The year in news: pipes|drums ranks the top stories of 2010

# 3 – The resignation of Robert Mathieson: after 23 years in charge of Shotts & Dykehead, Robert Mathieson deciding to call it quits as Pipe-Major only a week before the World Pipe Band Championship can be described best as bombshell news. That this occurred mid-season with almost no one seeing it coming, tipped the scales ahead of our next pick.


  1. Good job Andrew on bringing the pipe band world the most important stories to the forefront. I think you choice for #1 was spot on. What an achievement for such a talented young lady! 2011 should be a good one. I look forward to reading about it every step of the way right here on pipesdrums!
