Northern Meeting

This double CD features performances at the Northern Meeting in Inverness by ten of the world's most successful competitive pipers

Description

The album contains nearly 150 minutes of top-quality piping selected from BBC recordings made over the past ten years at the senior March, Strathspey & Reel competitions, - the Silver Star event as it is sometimes known - and the Gold Clasp or senior pìobaireachd competition. The Northern Meeting is arguably the most prestigious open solo piping competition in the world and, for most pipers, success in it is considered the pinnacle of pipers’ achievements. As a result this album is brim-full of brilliant performances by many of the world’s most successful pipers.

The Northern Meeting was the culmination of a unique collaboration between Macmeanmna, BBC Radio Scotland and the Northern Meeting Piping Sub-committee. As a consequence, highlights of the many hours of recordings made at the Northern Meeting for Radio Scotland’s ‘Pipeline’ programme over the period 1995 to 2004 are now available commercially. Apart from being of great interest to the piping aficionado the album is required listening for aspiring competitive pipers.
