30th Anniversary Tune Competition

The Friday night competition at this year’s Blowout (reviewed by George Featherston later) was to submit a tune to commemorate the 30th Anniversary of the founding of the Bagpipe Society. There was a particularly strong entry and the eventual winner was Tim Gleaves with the Quebec Mazurka. He was presented with a commemorative dish which had been designed and made by Society member Liz Teall. http://www.lizteallpottery.com (See photo with Blowout report)

Jon Swayne composed the 30th Anniversary Hornpipe which was designed to harmonise with 1st December – the tune that he was commissioned to write for the foundation of the Society back in 1986.
