Liddell wins Donald MacLeod Memorial

Stuart Liddell

Stornoway, Scotland – April 8, 2016 – The 23rd annual Donald MacLeod Memorial Invitational Solo Piping Competition was won by Stuart Liddell of Inveraray, Scotland, a contest in tribute to local favourite piping son, with tunes by the late great composer submitted, along with others. Alan Forbes, Iain MacFadyen and John Wilson judged all of the events.
