Armadale, Skye, Scotland – June 16, 2012 – Just in time for Father’s Day, Murray Henderson of Kirriemuir, Scotland, edged out his daughter, Faye, Simon McKerrell and Gordon Walker to win the 26th annual Donald MacDonald Quaich, held at the Clan Donald Centre at Armadale Castle.

 

The elder Henderson – the only piper in history to win a Clasp at the Northern Meeting in four different decades – played “Lady Margaret MacDonald’s Salute,” and was determined the winner by adjudicator Jack Taylor.

 

Gordon Walker, Galston, Scotland, played “Glengarry’s March,” Simon McKerrell of Newcastle, England, performed “Too Long in this Condition,” and Faye Henderson played “The Piper’s Warning to His Master.”

 

The invitational competition is sponsored by the Clan Donald Association and features tunes from the Donald MacDonald Manuscript of 1822. The pipers are allowed to choose the tune that they will perform.

 

The famous piper Dr. Angus MacDonald of Skye was Fear an Taighe for the event.

The competition was sponsored again by Glenfiddich.

TIP OF THE DAY
Drummers: Relatively speaking, compared with a practice pad, a soft tap on a drum will sound fairly loud unless it is exaggerated. To get a light sound on a drum you have to play extra quiet.
