Glasgow – August 10, 2012 – Connor Sinclair of Crieff, Scotland, was the winner of the final round of the 2012 Pipe Idol competition at the Piping Live! Glasgow International Festival of Piping, after four rounds of qualifying events held each day of the week, with one contestant from each day going to the final.

The 16-year-old Sinclair was elected the best of a four-piper final, with Andrew Clark, Angus MacColl Jr., and David Shedden also competing.

Each piper had to play a selection of tunes, including an MSR and a set of jigs that included a composition by Donald MacLeod, whose life and career were celebrated throughout the day at the festival.

The winner was chosen by a panel of three anonymous judges. The competitoon was held in a packed auditorium at the National Piping Centre and streamed live to the Internet.

For his efforts, Sinclair won a set of Fred Morrison Reelpipes.
