Metro Cup medleys in video

We’re pleased to bring you medley performances from the 2016 Metro Cup Invitational Solo Piping Competition, held on February 20, 2016, at the Ramada Airport Hotel in Newark, New Jersey. Contestants could perform whatever they wished in a medley between five and eight minutes long. Each piper had five minutes to tune.

1st Gordon Walker, Galston, Scotland

We thank each piper and hope that pipes|drums readers enjoy these often amazing performances.
