Beat The Drum

A street band named Clanadonia often plays in the city centres of Edinburgh and Glasgow. Their pipe and drum music is wild, stirring stuff – and you can hear them from a long way off! Here I’ve concentrated on just two members of the band in action.

The title, “Beat The Drum”, comes from the lyrics of a song by another Scottish band, the rock group Runrig. The lyrics go: “Beat the drum, beat the drum, lonely and strong…”.
