Kincardine, Ontario – July 5, 2014 – On a typically brilliant, sunny, warm summer day on the shore of Lake Huron at the 15th annual Kincardine Scottish Festival, the 78th Fraser Highlanders continued their unbeaten streak in Ontario with a first in the Grade 1 medley contest, with four firsts from the judges. Grade 2 saw only the new Greater Midwest Pipe Band play, unfortunately travelling from their Michigan home-base without another challenger in the grade. Ian K. MacDonald picked up another Piper of the Day award. Zack Miller was the Professional Drummer of the Day.

TIP OF THE DAY
Pipers, try not to anticipate the doubling, playing ahead of the beat. Worry about placing the G gracenote right in time and the second gracenote of the doubling will follow. Listen to yourself playing the melody with only the G gracenote.
