A month since the 2013 World Pipe Band Championships at Glasgow Green, Glasgow, and pipes|drums Magazine revisits the two-day spectacle with a video montage from the event that saw some 220 pipe bands compete August 17-18 for some of the biggest prizes in the piping and drumming world.

We worked hard to capture some of the images, music and commentary from the competition, in addition to the videos already published from the victory celebration of Field Marshal Montgomery and the full Grade 2 Final. From the performances of Simon Fraser University, to behind-the-scenes images of the world’s top bands preparing, to under-the-stands insights, to more footage of the 2013 World Pipe Band Champions, this is the content not polished for the non-piper and non-drummer, but the stuff that only those in the unique club will truly understand.

We hope that you enjoy “Sights and sounds from the 2013 World Pipe Band Championships,” and watch for additional video content from that August week in Glasgow, exclusively from pipes|drums Magazine.

Write drum scores at about the same tempo that the tune will be played in competition. If a score is written when a piper is playing slowly, then the score may sound too busy and and will be hard to play at competition tempo.
