Iain MacDonald passed along a youtube link at the end of the string of comments from the get-rid-of-the-über-boring-pipe-band-set post. Really, now. I think it deserves full front row centre treatment. It is marvelous.
Now this is an example of pipe band performance for the masses.
As a sixteen year-old I recall thinking I was pretty clever being able to march [while playing the pipes] to create a St Andrew’s Cross formation — all in a feather bonnet and plaid. The crowds loved it then.
But in this vid we see something on a whole new level! Seriously, wouldn’t your local Highland games crowds — and beyond — eat this Assam Rifles stuff up? I mean, be honest. For sheer entertainment, this trumps pipe band MSRs, medleys and just about anything the best our leading pipe band exponents might dream up.
Go Assam Rifles Pipes & Drums!
