Modderfontein, South Africa – May 11, 2013 – Transvaal Scottish, or “The Jocks” as they are commonly known, continued their unbeaten season by winning both the Grade 2 MSR and the Medley at the annual Celtic Fest at Modder Sports Complex in Modderfontein, Johannesburg. African Skye finished second, with two firsts in piping in the MSR and a first in ensemble in the medley. Sandton Scottish continued its dominance in the band’s first season in Grade 3, and only two years since the band was formed.
