The year in news: the Top 10 pipes|drums stories of 2011

Sadly, 2011 was another year of saying goodbye to great contributors to the art, and we had to mark the deaths of these fine people. We will miss them greatly.

James Coldren, Ian Conn, David Duncan, Harold Hook, Jim Hutton, John Kerr, Ranald Livingstone, Martin Lowe, Donald MacGillivray, Darby McCarrol, Jimmie McGregor, Terry McHugh, Ian McLean, Darleen Miharija-Milloy, John Riding, Ron Rollo, Jim Sutherland, Lewis Turrell.

 Come what may in 2012, pipes|drums will work to bring you the stories that matter, and we wish you personally nothing but the best for the New Year.


  1. Excellent summary. Ending with a reminder of the good byes we had to say to the great characters and friends we share the love of the music with, puts it all in perspective. How lucky we are to love the pipes and share the music and our lives with such wonderful folk!
