Pipe Drumming Legend and Pearl Artist Jim Kilpatrick paid a visit to Pearl's Nashville, TN Headquarters this past week en route to a Pipe Drumming symposium in TX.

Easily the most decorated Pipe Drummer in the world, Jim has won an astounding 18 World Drum Corps Championships, 14 as the leading drummer. He also holds the current Champion of Champions drum corps title, which he has now won a record 15 times. In 2004, Jim was awarded the MBE (Member of the British Empire) for his services to music by Her Majesty The Queen, and most recently in 2009 was the first pipe band drummer inducted into the Scottish Traditional Music Hall of Fame.
