Scotia, New York – October 8, 2016 – Andrew Hutton’s two firsts and a second resulted in a clear overall win of the 2016 Nicol-Brown Amateur Invitational Championship, judged by Nick Hudson and Willie McCallum. The 34th edition of the event, this year held at First Reformed Church of Scotia, attracted the usual strong field of North American contestants who are on the brink of turning professional. Among other prizes, Hutton receives airfare to compete at the Scottish Pipers Society of London’s competitions in November 2017.

Once again, pipes|drums made a monetary contribution to the event.
