Scottish Pipers’ Association Professional Competition – pix added

The Champion Piper at today’s Scottish Pipers’ Association competition held at the College of Piping, Glasgow, was Chris Armstrong.

Chris, P/M of the Scottish Power band, won both the Piobaireachd event and the Former Winners MSR. His tune in the piobaireachd was Rory MacLoude’s Lament. 21 played. Other big winners were FMM’s Graham Drummond (S&R) and Ben Duncan (M) of the Royal Scots Dragoon Guards. The 6/8 march was won by Steven Gray. Judges reported a very good standard of play, particularly in the ‘big’ MSR where the pipers were asked to play two marches, two strathspeys and two reels. The picture above shows Steven, Graham, Chris and Ben with their trophies. Full results here.
