Angus MacColl retains Springbank Invitational title

Campbeltown, Scotland – September 17, 2022 – The usually annual Springbank Invitational Solo Piping Competition resumed its regular yearly schedule with the event at the Argyle Arms Hotel, where Angus D. MacColl of Benderloch, Scotland, took the aggregate prize based only on the Piobaireachd and MSR events, with Campbeltown native Willie McCallum, who now lives in Bearsden, Scotland, a close second.

MacColl won the 2019 Springbank, the last time the contest was held.

The contest was first held in 2000, and is organized by the local Kintyre Piping Society. Springbank Distillery, makers of a highly rated and way-too-difficult-to-find malt whisky, is the title sponsor.
