Young pipers invited to have a day at the SPA
For the first time ever, young pipers from anywhere in the world can have a chance to compete in the prestigious Scottish Pipers’ Association’s annual Juvenile Competition, held this year for the first time ever by recorded online video.
The SPA was founded in 1920, so this year is celebrating its 100th anniversary. The Juvenile competition is one of the most prestigious there is for younger players. Former winners of the events being a who’s-who of some of the greatest names in piping history, including John D. Burgess, Iain MacFadyen and Andrew Wright.
“We are delighted to once again have our annual Juvenile Competition, albeit in a new online format,” said SPA President Logan Tannock. “This event allows for the current COVID-19 regulations in Scotland.”
