89 : Medleys Over the Decades

Pipers’ Persuasion garnered a few known faces to discuss the evolution of Medley playing by Pipe bands over the decades from 1970.
In the last Episode we had the Tribute to Shotts and Dykehead pb which has the full performance of that 1970 winning Medley.
As a taster we open now with a small part of that Tribute performance.
This is followed by contributions from Ken Stewart, john Scullion, Harry Steveneson, Ian Maclellan regarding the 70s and we develop that through Bill Livingstone and Jim Wark.
Finally Duncan Nicholson assists with his thoughts on the last decade or so and close with a small part of the DroneChorus recording of Police Scot and Fed pb competing at Arena 1 – the same arena as the Tribute Band – at this year’s – 2022 – World PB Medley competition.
As usual we hope that you find this Episode interesting and we also take this opportunity to thank all those who appeared and supported the production of this Episode.
