Archie Kenneth Quaich 2022

March 12th

The thirtieth annual amateur Piobaireachd competition for the Archie Kenneth Quaich will take place on Saturday, 12th March 2022. The venue is The Scots Guards Club, Haymarket, Edinburgh, starting at 09.30 a.m. 

The closing date for entries has passed. Enquiries to: peter.mccalister@doctors.org.uk

Competitors should submit two tunes with their entries, one of which they will be asked to play on the day. Players will receive the name of the tune selected by the judges in the final tuning room. Competitors may not submit any tune with which they have previously won first prize in the competition.

Conditions for eligibility are as follows:

  1. Competitors must be members of the Piobaireachd Society
  2. Competitors aged 18 or over.
  3. Competitors must be amateur pipers. An amateur piper is someone who has never accepted a money prize in a senior solo competition.
  4. Anyone in doubt about their eligibility to play should contact the
    competition organiser for advice.

This competition has been increasingly popular in recent years. In the event that there are significantly more than 25 entries there will be a ballot, and the first 25 entries drawn will be selected to play, plus reserves. Those who are unsuccessful in this ballot will be definite confirmed entries for the 2023 competition, if they intend to enter that.
