Scottish Pipe Band Championships – Inveraray Champions

Inveraray were declared Scottish Pipe Band Champions today at a damp Levengrove Park, Dumbarton. The weather had an effect on the crowd but there were still significant numbers enjoying the music and the sideshows. The win gave P/M Stuart Liddell his second championship of the season.

The other G1 places went to:

2 Scottish Power
3 Field Marshal
5 Boghall
6 Fife Police

with the drumming going to Scottish Power.

Each band had to submit two Medleys, one of which was chosen at the line. The judges in Grade 1 were: Piping – Brian Switala (NZ), John Wilson; Ensemble – Alan Ronaldson; Drumming – Greg Dinsdale (Canada).
