Regina, Saskatchewan – May 15, 2015 – The Prairie Piping Invitational was third-time’s-a-charm for Calgary’s Stewart Smith, who came out the winner at the competition, held as part of the three-day Saskatchewan Highland Gathering & Celtic Festival. Second prize went to his brother, Andrew Smith, also of Calgary, and third to Andrea Boyd of Ottawa. Also performing and not in the prizes were Eilidh MacDonald, Alex Rasmussen and Sean Somers.

The event was judged by James Beaumont, and organized and sponsored by the City of Regina Pipe Band and Reelpipes.com. A packed room of spectators also got to express their preference, each ticket also being a ballot for “Audience Choice,” and Stewart Smith also won that vote, receiving a bottle of whisky for his success.

Competitors at the annual Prairie Piping Invitational. L-R: Eilidh MacDonald, Andrea Boyd, Sean Somers, Stewart Smith, Andrew Smith and Alex Rasmussen.
