The Grade 1 World Champion Shotts & Dykehead Caledonia pipe-major is drawing upon material that his current band has performed since he became pipe major as well as numerous compositions and arrangements that his former band, Field Marshal Montgomery, played during the 16 years he was a piper with them.
It’s been 11 years since he released The Full Monty and he has written a lot of new music during this time which has featured in competition medleys and concert repertoires of both the Field Marshal Montgomery during his years there, and Shotts & Dykehead Caledonia since 2013,”  Canning said. “All of these tunes are included in the book, and I’ve also written a lot of new material which has never been heard before. The book contains 49 new compositions and arrangements, and 19 accompanying harmony scores.”
The collection’s name is taken from “The Blockbuster,” the three-partedhornpipe that Canning wrote in 2008, first played as the opener for theall-star Grade 1 Spirit of Scotland Pipe Band, assembled that year fromavailable, willing and able pipers and drummers. The tune has since become one of Canning’s most popular and played compositions.
