Duncan best overall at Braemar

Ben Duncan

Braemar, Scotland – September 7, 2019 – Competitors playing early battled against single-digit temperatures, and the royal family was wrapped in plenty of blankets in their garland-festooned box at the annual Bramaer Gathering in Royal Deeside, where Matt Pantaleoni won the piobaireachd and Ben Duncan enjoyed the most consistent day. Even though there was a reserve list due to a cap of 30 total contestants, fewer than 25 played. The games does not adhere to hiring only judges from the list of members of the Solo Piping Judges Association, the only solo adjudicators’ accreditation body in the UK.
