Dunedin, New Zealand – June 2-3, 2022 – Greg Wilson of Tai Tapu, New Zealand, and Liam Kernaghan of Auckland were the big winners at the 110th annual Queen’s Birthday competition, one of New Zealand’s major solo piping events. More than 70 pipers competed on the weekend across four grades at Otago Centre, in cool but clear weather. Kernaghan won the overall A Grade for a second year in a row, and Wilson took the A Grade Piobaireachd and the Former Winners MSR.
