“I’m delighted to win the Glenfiddich Championship, which is the most prestigious prize in solo piping,” says Lee, who also participated in the Scottish Society of London competition, along with the band’s pipe major Alan Bevan, this past weekend.
Both the SFU band and its junior Robert Malcolm Memorial band are both highly reputed in the solo piping world.
Lee, who won the Piobaireachd at Glenfiddich in 2012 (and twice previously), has been invited to the prestigious competition several times. By winning this year’s contest he is invited back for 2018.
SFU piper Craig Sutherland, also one of the 10 competing this year at the Glenfiddich contest, finished fourth.
