Hamilton, Ontario – October 19, 2013 – Ben McClamrock of Baltimore was the winner of the 2013 Livingstone Invitational Solo Piping Competition, held at the Officers’ Mess at James Street Armoury, the headquarters of the Argyll & Sutherland Highlanders of Canada.


McClamrock competed against Ed Bush, Cardinal, Ontario; Ann Gray, Calgary; Derek Midgley, Tinton Falls, New Jersey; and Glenn Walpole, Kincardine, Ontario. Jamie Troy of Victoria, British Columbia, had to withdraw and did not attend.

Competitors, each of whom received an appearance fee for participating, could play whatever they liked within a maximum 20-minute period, but had to include at least one composition by Ontario-based piper Michael Grey, who was one of the judges of the event, along with John Cairns and John MacKenzie, also of Ontario. No other prizes were awarded.

The competition was organized by the Niagara-Hamilton Branch of the Pipers & Pipe Band Society of Ontario, and has been held regularly since the early 1980s.
