Premier Professional Piping Contest
July 9, 2016 @ 2:00 pm
For the first time, the Grandfather Mountain Highland Games along with the Eastern United States Pipe Band Association will be offering a Premier Professional Solo Piping Contest. The is the 1st annual Ed Neigh Memorial Competition. There will be two premier contests, Piobaireachd and double MSR (two marches, two strathspeys and two reels).
The EUSPBA created this competition in the hopes of inspiring and challenging its top-level pipers, and GMHG is proud to be one of four of these contests in 2016.
These contests will be featured on Saturday afternoon inside the track, and we invite all competing amateur players as well as other members of the piping community to join us on the in-field to watch this exciting, new event.
We encourage all professional players who are interested and able to enter before the deadline on June 18th. Please visit gmhg.org to enter or to get more information. Also, please share with your friends and anyone who may be interested.
