Recorded at a unique competition for players of the Scottish snare drum. The drum is the same as the one you will see in most marching bands, but the style of playing is all their own.
Usually hidden in a corps of drums in a pipe band, here the world's leading players show their skills, 'accompanied' by some of the best pipers in Scotland. A must for lovers of Scottish music, pipe band music in particular, and any drummer will find much to envy and admire in the extraordinary level of technique displayed here.
This album features twelve of the best pairs of hands in world drumming: Jim Kilpatrick, Eric Ward, John Scullion, Gordon Brown, Paul Turner, James King, Jim Collins, Jackie Houlden, Barry Wilson, Allan Craig, Neil Cranston and Arthur Cook.
