Glasgow, Scotland. It's the World Pipe Band Championships -- 8000 musicians from 16 countries. All on one day. This year a new group joins the battle of the bands. Calling themselves The Spirit of Scotland, the world's top solo players have come together for the first time to attempt the impossible: compete against legendary bands that have been around for decades. What are their chances after just six days of practice? Will they even qualify? In the end, all that matters is what happens on the day. Photo Credit: Derek Maxwell
