Eade, Maxwell win Fall 2021 World Online Solos

The Internet – December 15, 2021 – The world’s biggest online solo piping and drumming competitions are also the longest-running and, coincidentally, the World Online Championships, and Brendon Eade of New Zealand and British Columbia’s Grant Maxwell were the overall champions in the Open/Professional Piping and Open Snare Drumming categories. Eade repeated his overall success after taking the aggregate at the Summer World Online Solos. The competition reported that it is approaching 10,000 separate entries since the series began in 2013. You can find all the prizelists here.

The winner of the newly introduced Colin MacKenzie Memorial Piobaireachd Challenge and US$250 was Duncan Winters and the P-M Alasdair Gillies Memorial 2/4 March Scholarship of US$250 went to Abby Long.

The competition calculates overall success of countries, bands and associations based on entrants’ details. The best overall country was New Zealand, and the most successful association was the Royal New Zealand Pipe Band Association, and the Hamilton Caledonian Society Pipe Band, also of New Zealand, took the band category.

Organizers BagpipeLessons.com reported that they are working on a searchable database of all prizewinners from all events since the competitions started.
