Hastings, New Zealand – April 20-21, 2019 – At 16 years old, Campbell Wilson of Christchurch, New Zealand, became the youngest ever winner of the New Zealand Gold Medal for Piobaireachd, part of a strong lineup of solo piping competitions held in conjunction with the Hastings Highland Games. Wilson is the son of Northern Meeting Clasp winner Greg Wilson, who also enjoyed a substantially good day, taking the overall. The 6/8 March event, as is so often the case, did not count toward the aggregate award.
