Balloch, Scotland – July 13, 2013 – Solo piping entries to the Balloch Highland Games exploded after the addition of a Piobaireachd event, and a large entry enjoyed a gorgeous day in the mid-20s sunshine on the banks of Loch Lomond. Young Graham Drummond won both light music events and Carlisle took the piobaireachd. Both light music and ceol mor events were split into heats, with short leets competing in final rounds. William Geddes, who made the piobaireachd final, had to leave for work and couldn’t play after the event went into the night.

TIP OF THE DAY
When tuning chanters one-to-one, make sure that the players play tunes with each other. This will allow the players to blow more naturally than playing scales.
