Ottawa – April 13, 2019 – Matt MacIsaac of Stayner, Ontario, was the winner of the 2019 Glengarry Cup solo piping competition held at the Royal Canadian Air Force Officers’ Mess in downtown Ottawa. The Glengarry Cup is an invitational own-choice March, Strathspey & Reel contest organized by the Ottawa Branch of the Pipers & Pipe Band Society of Ontario. The trophy was donated to the Branch in 1987 by the Glengarry Pipe Band of Maxville, Ontario. The event resumed after a hiatus in 2018 due to a spring ice storm. MacIsaac was the winner of the last Glengarry Cup in 2017.
