Markinch, Scotland – June 5, 2011 – With temperatures around eight degrees and a stiff wind all day, the annual Markinch Games were a challenge for competitors. While the Piobaireachd was judged by highly respected adjuidicators, no one was too sure of who was judging the light music events. It was revealed later that they were Lawrie Gillespie and Roderick Barron, neither of whom are on the Joint Committee’s approved list of judges. Due to the cold, the Piobaireachd judges resorted to taking refuge in a car.

TIP OF THE DAY
Pipers, try not to anticipate the doubling, playing ahead of the beat. Worry about placing the G gracenote right in time and the second gracenote of the doubling will follow. Listen to yourself playing the melody with only the G gracenote.
