Named after Gordon Duncan's famous '98 Jig'

The '98 Highlanders Pipes and Drums' were formed in July 2007 to perform at the 'Celtica' Festival, Val d' Aosta, in Northern Italy and Chamonix France. We performed a number of concerts in memory of piper and composer Gordon Duncan, who passed away in December 2005. See www.gordonduncan.co.uk.
