A live album from the previous four-time World Champions, under the direction of Pipe Major Terry Lee. Recorded at The Simon Fraser University Theatre, BC, Canada, and celebrating the Band’s 40th Anniversary.
In 2004 the SFU Drum Corps won the World Drumming title for the second time - the Simon Fraser University Pipe Band is recognised as one of the best live concert pipe bands in the world.
The album was produced by Murray Blair and is a mix of classic pipe band medleys, strathspey, reel, jig and march sets, plus special concert pieces, including solos and a duet. Guest musicians add fiddle, keyboards, bass guitar, whistles, border pipes, small pipes and bodhran to selected tracks, giving the album another dimension.
‘The dedicated musicians who are the SFU Pipe Band have, like the travelling musicians of old, taken their show on the road… The SFU Pipe Band has married ancient tradition with a modern movement, and has given pipe band music a place on the great stages of the world.’
