Overall winner Cameron MacDougall

This important, relatively new competition for talented young pipers was held on October 4th in Falkirk in Central Scotland. Main sponsor and founder of the competition, pipemaker Blue  MacMurchie, described this year’s standard of playing as at ‘the highest level’ possible for youngsters. One feature of the contest, and one that is always appreciated by the townsfolk is the parade of the competing pipers through the town after the contest concludes. Next year’s event is on Oct 3rd.  This year’s judges were Logan Tannock, Blue MacMurchie and Jennifer Hutcheon. For more pix from the contest click here.
