Nothing brushes away the winter doldrums better than great bagpiping. This past weekend saw the The Metro Cup solo piping invitational, which brought the top solo pipers on the global circuit to Newark, New Jersey for an excellent day and evening of ceol mor and freestyle medley performances. Dojo U’s own Bruce Gandy, Cameron Drummond (making his first appearance at the event), and Callum Beaumont each had impressive renditions in the piobaireachd event. Bruce placed third, Cameron placed fifth while Callum placed second in the event. Here is audio of Cameron's and Callum's piobaireachd. Enjoy!
Callum Beaumont, "Lament for the Earl of Antrim"
Cameron Drummond, "MacDougal's Gathering"
