A pipes|drums Photo Feature: Saturday at the 2013 World’s

Published: September 21, 2013

They were two days to remember, and we bring pipes|drums Magazine subscribers a special two-day photo feature from the 2013 World Pipe Band Championships held August 17-18, 2013, at Glasgow Green, Glasgow. We start with images from the first day of competition, a day that began with intermittently wet – at times horrendous – weather that laid waste to bands that competed during a particularly drenching 45-minute period in the morning. Among the bands hardest hit were Simon Fraser University, Inveraray & District, the Toronto Police and, of course, Shotts & Dykehead, which was nearly blown off the park mid-way through their march, strathspey & reel. We hope that you enjoy these images from Saturday at the 2013 World’s, which will be followed by a similar feature of photos from the Sunday . . .

TIP OF THE DAY
Pipers: For those playing cane reeds, if they stop try blowing down the drone a couple of times rather than springing the tongue. This will give the blade a natural gentle lift.
