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
Try to play a pipe chanter reed for your solo performamces that you are comfortable with and that produces a volume that balances with the volume of your drones. Remember you are looking for a different sound to that produced by your pipe band reed.
