The year in news: the Top 10 pipes|drums stories of 2011
The eighth variation of the Piping Live! Glasgow International Festival of Piping grew to more than 170 performances over the course of eight days in Glasgow in August. Piping Live! continues to go from strength-to-strength, and now probably outstrips the World Pipe Band Championships itself in terms of galvanizing the interest of the piping and drumming public and, as always, pipes|drums was there on each of the biggest days of that hamburger week in Glasgow.
