Christopher Armstrong, Gordon Maclean, Stuart Cassells and Andrew Wright: four of Scotland’s most talented young champion pipers come together on one album, emphasising that the future of the Scottish piping tradition is in safe hands.
In 1997 these lads were four of Scotland’s most talented young champion pipers, and they came together on one album at the request of Gordon Duncan, who went on to produce the album.
These pipers emphasised that the future of the Scottish piping tradition was in safe hands, as Gordon Duncan suggested. Each has gone on to carve out a career in the piping scene.
In particular Stuart Cassells founded the now famous Red Hot Chilli Pipers and Christopher Armstrong rose to Pipe Major of The Scottish Power Pipe Band.
At the time of the recording two of the lads were 17 years of age and two were only 16.
Brilliant solo piping from all four.
