Jack MacLean Wins Windsor Police Pipe Band Composing Competition

A 4/4 march by Jack MacLean of Halifax, Nova Scotia, has been chosen the winning entry in the Windsor Police Pipe Band‘s composing contest.

Now officially named “The Windsor Police Pipe Band,” the two-part tune was chosen, according to the band for “musically standing on its own merit and being within the playing abilities of all pipers in the Windsor Police.”

The event was judged by Pipe-Major Barry Ewen, bandmembers Steve MacNeil, Ian Moir, and Iain Macey.

Jack MacLean is the Pipe-Sergeant of the 78th Highlanders (Halifax) Pipe Band. For his tune, he receives a presentation practice chanter with Victorian engraved silver and a real ivory sole made by Gibson Bagpipes, David Marshall Silverworks, and Ivory Works Limited.
