Krogh, Dawson win top prizes in second Peel Police online solos

Adam Blaine of San Jose, California, competing in the Grade 1 solo piping.

The Internet – June 27, 2020 – The second event in the Peel Regional Police Pipe Band’s four-contest season of live online solo competitions saw Teddy Krogh of Anchorage, Alaska, and Harvey Dawson of Ontario win the professional piping and snare drumming events, respectively. The events were held using Microsoft Teams, allowing interaction between players and judges, from submitting tunes to post-performance discussions. Competitors and judges did not have to wear “Highland dress,” though some elected to play with a kilt on. The next Peel Police competition will be on July 25th.
