A double CD set featuring highlights from the Silver Star and Gold Clasp Competitions between 1995 and 2004 at the Northern Meeting in Inverness, one of the world's most prestigious piping competitions.

Six tracks of piobaireachd and eight tracks of MSR, featuring pipers Angus McColl, Mike Cusack, Alasdair Gillies, Willie McCallum, Murray Henderson, Gordon Walker, Bruce Gandy, Dr Angus MacDonald, James Murray and Greg Wilson.

Originally recorded for BBC Radio Scotland's Pipeline programme, a double CD featuring performances by ten of the world’s most successful competitive pipers. 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.

Featuring performances by Alasdair Gillies, who hails from Ullapool but is now resident in Pittsburgh, USA * Mike Cusack, headmaster of St Thomas Episcopal School in Houston, Texas * Angus MacColl from Benderloch, Argyll * Willie McCallum from Campbeltown * New Zealanders Murray Henderson, who now lives in Kirriemuir, and Greg Wilson * Pipe-Major Gordon Walker of Moscow, Ayrshire * Canadian Bruce Gandy * Dr Angus MacDonald of Glenuig, now in practice in Skye * and James Murray from the Kingdom of Fife.
