Ottawa – April 9, 2016 – Andrea Boyd of Ottawa took her second consecutive Glengarry Cup, an invitational contest organized by the Ottawa Branch of the Pipers & Pipe Band Society of Ontario. The own-choice MSR contest was held at the RCAF Officers’ Mess in downtown Ottawa. It was Boyd’s third time winning the prize. The trophy is donated by the Glengarry Pipe Band. The event was judged by John Elliott, who also led a reed and sound fundamentals workshop earlier in the day for about 60 attendees, taking them through different aspects of the chanter reed making process and reed manipulation techniques.
