Hastings, New Zealand – April 25, 2014 – Greg Wilson hauled in his twelfth Clasp for Piobaireachd and, for good measure, won the overall prize in the Grade A light music at the 2014 Annual Hastings Highland Games, considered the pinnacle of piobaireachd competitions in New Zealand. Tracey Williams, recently returned from Scotland, picked up the 56th Gold Medal with “The Desperate Battle.” Andrew Edwards claimed the Silver Medal, Hamish Dick won the Under-21 New Zealand Championship Piobaireachd, and Braden Mills won the Bronze Medal. Wilson also picked up the Strathspey & Reel, double 2/4 Marches and was placed second in the Hornpipe and Jig. Liam Kernaghan won the A Grade MSR, the 2/4 March, and was second in the Strathspey & Reel, while Brendon Eade won the Hornpipe & Jig and the 6/8 March. All piobaireachd events were judged by Brian Switalla and Iain Hines, and Stewart McKenzie judged the A-Grade light music.
