Bruce Takes MacCrimmon Cairn and Overall at BCPA
Bruce travelled to Vancouver, British Columbia on Easter Weekend to attend the BC Pipers Annual Gathering, one of North America's premier solo contests. Bruce won the MacCrimmon Cairn for piobaireachd for the sixth time (1982, 1991, 1996, 2001, 2003, 2014) and Bruce also won the Overall Aggregate, with a 2nd prize in the MSR and a prize in the Jigs. Congratulations to Alastair Lee, winner of the MSR, and also to Andrew Lee, winner of the jigs!
Having grown up in piping on the West Coast, this event is like coming home for Bruce, and it's always great to play well at home!
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!
