Jack Lee returns to solo circuit at Comox

Courtenay, British Columbia – May 22, 2010 – A small turnout of pipe bands, but a large entry in the solo events made the Comox Valley Highland Games a successful event. The contest showed that Jack Lee is back playing the competition circuit, playing against his children and nephews, among others.

  1. Congrats to Jack. Great to hear him playing at local competitions. The young players can learn so much from watching Jack compete. Having Jack play at all the competitions will make us all better players. Boney

  2. Congratulations to all the Lees! It must surely be the first time in modern piping history that four members of the one family have featured in a single prizelist. The only other possibility I can think of is that perhaps, and it’s a big if, if John, Iain, Duncan and Freena MacFadyen ever shared the same list in an amateur competition. And Jack – coming into 2nd place behind son Colin must rank as one of your greatest achievements, amongst many. Tremendous.
