The second part of a live recording 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 2005.

The solo pipers on the album are Alan Bevin, who continues to win solo piping prizes and turn heads in all venues, and Stuart Liddell, a piper who makes it seem easy, with a fluid style which is admired wherever he plays.

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. Guest musicians add other acoustic instruments, 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.’
