This is a truly unique collection of recordings tracing the musical history of the Shotts and Dykehead Pipe Band. It includes private archive recordings from band members' official RSPBA Championship recordings, as well as live concert recordings.

The Shotts and Dykehead Pipe Band started in 1910 and still features highly on the Championship circuit. Generations of playing and voices can be heard on this recording, taking the listener on a musical journey through time. Performers from each decade take us up to the fully developed modern-day pipe band on the concert and competition platforms.
