The Oban Times - - News -

LOCHABER Pip­ing So­ci­ety held its an­nual ju­nior pip­ing com­pe­ti­tion at Lochaber High School on Satur­day April 8.

This year’s ad­ju­di­ca­tors were Rona Light­foot, Euan MacCrim­mon and Dougie Beck. Mr Beck said: ‘It’s heart­en­ing to see the stan­dard young mu­si­cians are achiev­ing. The fan­tas­tic de­vel­op­ments in tra­di­tional mu­sic over the past 20 years mean younger pipers have a plethora of op­tions to en­gage with their mu­sic. How­ever, it is ev­i­dent the skills and dis­ci­pline re­quired to take part in events such as this are val­ued. A lot of hard work went in on the part of the pipers, their tu­tors and their par­ents and they should all be con­grat­u­lated.’ Re­sults: Chanter 10 years and un­der - March - 1 Shaughn Paul Dun­lop; 2 Ai­dan Pater­son.
