Wow, two posts in as many days? Yep, that’s right. I’m not saying I’m back, I’m just sayin’.
I stumbled across these few videos last night. They were recorded at the Lord Todd Piping Recital Challenge in August, just before the World Pipe Band Championship. Four of the top pipers in the world were invited to participate, and the performances were captured and shared for all on YouTube by user MacArthurPiper. While not quite the professional quality of the DVD made of the event in 2007, these videos are better than 90% of piping videos on YouTube: steady cameras, no heads in the way, and most importantly, good sound.
Alasdair Gillies, Angus MacColl, Stuart Liddell, and Alan Bevan were invited to play this year, and based on the videos it was a great show. Here is the first video from each of the four players, and the others show up in the related videos list. It’s a crime that these videos have so few views, so I’ll do my best to send traffic on over to increase those view counts.
Stuart Liddell (couldn’t find video #1)
