BBC Scotland to Stream Worlds Again This Year

July 27, 2010
This is great news. I watched the whole thing last year and, apart from getting very little sleep, it was brilliant. The tyranny of distance is really becoming less of an issue now. There will be two NZ bands competing in the grade 1 qualifiers. Hopefully they will get to play again later in the day. Plan to stay up on the evening of the 14/15 August.

BBC Pipeline features Greg Wilson

May 5, 2008

Well worth a listen any time, but this week’s Pipeline features Greg Wilson. It also has performances of Munro’s Salute and Sir Ewen Cameron of Lochiel’s Salute from Breton piper Patrick Molard, some rip snorting playing from Stuart Liddell and other fantastic music. IMHO one of the more interesting programmes. Click here to listen.
