Ascension Double Album

We are pleased to announce that our Ascension concert recording has been released as a double CD. When producing the album we realised that there were just too many sets we wanted to share with people so decided to release the entire show. The Albums come in one package with an eight page booklet containing all tune names and some humorous background stories to them!
You can now order the live Ascension double album from our shop. CDs will be dispatched shoortly after!

«The 2013 Pre-World’s “Ascension” concert was, without question, one of the most creative and inspirational concerts I have attended. The sold out audience at the Glasgow Royal Concert Hall was entertained with unparalleled musical and artistic diversity. The band and their supporting performers tapped into all of our emotions. This live recording captures a great moment in the history of pipe bands. A standing ovation performance from start to finish.» Bob Worrall
