Set Tunes for 2002 Announced by Piobaireachd Society

The Piobaireachd Society has announced the set tune lists for the 2002 Argyllshire gathering, Northern Meeting, and Piobaireachd Society (Canada) competitions.

In a surprise move, the list for the Silver Medal competitions will remain unchanged from that of 2001, with competitors required to submit the same number of tunes. In both the lists for the Senior and Gold Medal competitions, several of the tunes were set in the last three years.

There had been some speculation that the tune submission requirement for the Gold Medal events would be reduced from six to four, but the 2002 requirement remains six.
