Bruce Caps a Great Year at the Glenfiddich
As well as all his teaching and band commitments, Bruce was able to continue his success at the highlest levels of solo competition in 2013. As a result of his 2nd prize in the Argyllshire Gathering (Oban) Senior Piobaireachd, Bruce was one of the 10 pipers invited to the 40th annual Glenfiddich Invitational Piping Championships, held October 27 at Blair Atholl Castle, Scotland.
In front of a capacity crowd, and with live-streaming to the world, Bruce completed two excellent performances and was awarded a 4th prize in the piobaireachd event and 3rd prize in the MSR!
Congratulations to all 10 pipers on a great season, and a magnificent day of music at the Glenfiddich, and special congratulations to Iain Speirs on winning the overall Glenfiddich Championship for the 2nd year in a row.
Welcome to my web site!
While you are here, be sure to visit the improved online store, and read about "The Bruce Gandy Bagpiping Development Society." Have a look at the page, and see the bottom section on how YOU can help! Be sure to make contact if you have ideas, suggestions, or want to offer assistance.
This is also the place to make contact with me about lessons, workshops, judging, or consultation for a set of pipes or some great chanter reeds.
From time to time, I post on my blog, and I am always interested to hear from people about piping.
Thanks for visiting!
