Campbeltown, Scotland – September 15, 2012 - With a first in the MSR and a second in the Piobaireachd, Willie McCallum was the overall winner of the Springbank Invitational Solo Piping Competition for the eighth time in his career. Niall Stewart won the Piobaireachd, while Angus MacColl won the Hornpipe & Jig event, which is not counted towards the overall championship.
