Andrew you guys sure do a great job getting those results up fast.

Nice to see Callum up there in these big competitions. I met him years ago when he was really young and he sure could play great stuff then. Need some young pipers getting up there with the household names like Willie and such.

Congratulations to Alan and everyone else on that very prestigious prize list.

Great talent, years of hard work and excellant instruction have paid off. Alan has been so, so close for several years. Way to go!

Cheers,

I just listened to Pipeline, using the BBC's listen again service online.

Bill Geddes' performance of the Blind Piper's Obstinacy was a tour de force; I must learn that tune. It's different, and it rocks.

I also noticed that Willie McCallum won the former winners' MSR with a very well-played set that took about 7 minutes 40. That's interesting: competition MSR timings have been slowing down from 2 minutes 50 or so befone WW1, to just over 3m between the wars, to 3 min 40 in the 1970s, to 4 minutes about 5 years ago. Since then, people have been speeding up again, and Willie's been one of the leaders. I really like this: music should not be ponderous, it should make you tap your feet. Well done Willie!
