I know of no better way to spend “off time” than to watch/listen to great piping. It's better than a cup of tea as the cold weather bears down. It's the stuff that keeps you motivated to play, makes for exciting listening, and is educational. Regular doses of piping inspiration are a good remedy for whatever’s got you down, frustrated, or miffed.
The 2017 Glenfiddich recently passed and, those who were up early to watch the livestream on this side of the pond, got an earful of excellent performances as they happened. The recorded videos have now been released for the rest of us. So enjoy this slate of world-class performances, including Cameron Drummond's 5th place MSR.
