The Internet – October 4, 2020 – Calum Brown of Aberdeen, Scotland, swept all five Open 18 and Older piping events in the annual Shotts & Dykehead Caledonia Solo Competitions, held online due to the COVID-19 crisis. There was a large entry from all over the world for myriad events over numerous grades in each category of piping and drumming.

In the Open 18 and Older Solo Snare Drumming, a creative Fanfare event was held and won by Ewan McDonald. Players had to perform a two-to-five-minute selection that allowed overdubbed audio and video, and was “judged both on technical merit of the snare drumming and on creativity and entertainment value as well.”
