Shotts & Dykehead Legendary Drum Corps

Looking through my archive drum score folder I came across this old photo of the Legendary Alex Duthart and his drum corps. I remember removing the page from an old Premier drum catalogue in the late 1970’s. I have been told that Bert Barr was on the flank of this photo but unfortunately  was edited out for the page to fit the catalogue/brochure.

In 1977  I had the pleasure of seeing for the very first time the big man playing at the Cowal games and knew instantly that pipe band drumming would become a huge part of my life.

In my opinion his drum scores are some of the best scores ever written for the snare drum and for pipe band drummers.He revolutionised pipe band drumming with the use of drum rudiments and scores that were sympathetic to the pipe tune.
