MacKenzie and Wilson win everything in New Zealand

Alasdair MacKenzie

Christchurch – October 25-26, 2014 – Alasdair MacKenzie and Greg Wilson enjoyed stellar results at the annual Silver Chanter solo piping competitions, organized by the Highland Piping Society of Canterbury. Unlike the piobaireachd contest held in Skye in August, the New Zealand Silver Chanter is a March, Strathspey & Reel. MacKenzie won the Silver Chanter on the Saturday and followed with a win of the Clasp for former winners of the Silver Chanter on the Sunday. He was one of only a few to achieve the feat. Greg Wilson won all of the A-Grade solo piping events.
