Once again we bring pipers and drummers highlight videos to keep the fires burning over the long off-season in the northern hemisphere, and invigorating practice in the hot summer in the antipodes.

We start the series with Leading-Drummer Jake Jørgensen and Pipe-Major Neil Hall of the Grade 1 Lothian & Borders Police Pipe Band, who performed at the pipes|drums-sponsored Pipes+Drums Recital at the 2012 Piping Live! Glasgow International Piping Festival, where we brought four duos of some of the world’s best pipe band leaders.

Under Hall and Jørgensen, the Lothian & Borders Police rose up the competitive ranks in 2012, attracting new players and reinvigorating one of the world’s most historic bands.

We hope that you enjoy and are energized in your off-season (or on-season, for that matter) by these virtuoso performances!

Stay tuned to pipes|drums for more HD video from our 2012 Pipes+Drums event.

Pipers: If your pipe chanter reed has been sitting for 2 hours or more, hold the reed between your index and thumb with a slight squeeze to warm the reed up for 20 to 30 seconds before playing. This will reduce the time the reed takes to come into pitch.
