Piping Hot

The Southland Times
June 29, 2001

THE thousands who have attended the Pipin ' Hot concerts staged by the City of Invercargill Caledonian Pipe Band will scarcely be surprised to read of the thunderous ovation the show has received on its Canadian tour.
It is sometimes said that New Zealanders need to hear overseas acclaim for their artists before they truly accept them as world class.
That is not the case with this band, which in its Pipin ' Hot shows has
been upholding the strongest traditional standards of musicianship, while using theatrical techniques and wider musical styles to broaden the appeal.
Canadians are learning what Invercargill audiences have long-since
discovered. This band has much to offer both the purist and the populist.
Pipe bands worldwide would do well to take note.
