Glasgow – August 15, 2013 – Gordon Walker won his third Lord Todd Bar Recital Challenge at another packed house at the University of Strathclyde in the heart of Glasgow, playing first against Stuart Liddell, Callum Beaumont and Angus MacColl.

It was the eleventh time that the competition took place, with its pre-Piping Live! roots going back to 2003.

Walker dazzled the audience and, more importantly, the secret judges planted in the audience by organizer Willie McCallum, with a robust and resonant pipe that stayed well put for the entirety of the 30-plus-minute performance.

Callum Beaumont made his first appearance in the event and acquitted himself supremely well, as did six-time winner Angus MacColl and two-time winner Stuart Liddell. Liddell debuted his new Stuart Liddell model drones, made by Wallace Bagpipes.

Each competitor was required only to play a competition-style MSR and the ground of a piobaireachd.

John Wilson was again the compere for the event, regaling the audience in fine form with anecdotes and quips. The event was sponsored by McCallum Bagpipes.
