In August 2008, a new pipe band competed for the first time at the World Pipe Band Championships. With Roddy MacLeod as pipe major, the Spirit of Scotland Pipe Band boasted a very impressive lineup of pipers with something more than a dozen gold medals won by band members.
This morning I found a video of the band warming up before the MSR contest (maybe the Grade 1 qualifier?) at the Worlds. It’s interesting to watch, and they playing ain’t bad either.
