Gardiner makes short list at Duncan Johnstone, wins

Douglas Gardiner competing in shorts at the 2015 Duncan Johnstone Memorial.

Glasgow – March 14, 2015 – Douglas Gardiner of Edinburgh was the overall winner of the annual Duncan Johnstone Memorial Competition for solo pipers graded B and C by the Competing Pipers Association. With two completely different prize lists in the B-Grade events, Gardiner’s win in the Piobaireachd took preference over Connor Sinclair’s first in the MSR. Gardiner forgot to pack his kilt, but was allowed to compete in shorts, which he always wears when travelling to competitions. The event was held at the National Piping Centre.
