Top Pipers Prepare for Annual SPA Event

Scotland’s premier pipers are preparing for one of the indoor season’s major events on April 1 in Glasgow, the annual Scottish Pipers’ Association (SPA) competitions.

The SPA is one of the oldest and most traditional competitions, dating back to the association’s roots in the 1920s.

Roddy MacLeod, who started the 2000 season off by winning the aggregate prize at the annual Uist & Barra competitions in Glasgow on March 11, will attempt to continue his success at the SPA.

Gordon Walker, who won the MSR event at the Uist & Barra is also a favourite to do well at the SPA, along with other top players, like Willie McCallum, James Murray, and Niall Matheson.
