The National Youth Pipe Band of Scotland will be releasing a brand new album on the 23rd March 2012. The album, entitled Illumination, will be the Band’s second album since its formation by The National Piping Centre in 2002. The album was recorded live at The Old Fruitmarket, Glasgow where the NYPBoS performed to a full house and received glowing reviews, including a 4 star rating by the Scotsman.

The recording showcases Scotland’s next generation of pipers and drummers and includes 14 tracks from the band’s exciting concert repertoire including The Dragon’s Lair, Lullaby and The Annihilator all of which have become signature pieces for the band over the past 2 years.
