The double CD of the dynamic sell out Ascension concert in Glasgow’s Royal Concert Hall, given by the Inverary & District Pipe Band just before the 2013 World Pipe Band Championships is now on sale.
The virtuosity and variety of this unique concert took everyone’s breath away and was further evidence of the musicality and direction of the Grade 1 band’s celebrated Pipe Major, Stuart Liddel.
The double CD The Albums comes with an eight page booklet containing the names of all the tunes – and some humorous background stories to them.
Pre-sales of the albums closed on 11th December and it is now on open sale – from the band’s website here; online at other music sites; from Inveraray Post Office; and from David’s of Iveraray.
The Ascension concert [and the CD] are described by Bob Worrall – north American Chief Piping Instructor for the Highland Musical Arts School – as: ‘…one of the most creative and inspirational concerts I have attended. The sold out audience at the Glasgow Royal Concert Hall was entertained with unparalleled musical and artistic diversity. The band and their supporting performers tapped into all of our emotions. This live recording captures a great moment in the history of pipe bands. A standing ovation performance from start to finish’.
