Bill Livingstone has confirmed that he will adjudicate the upcoming Ottawa Branch Canadian Content Competition to be convened February 18, 2012 at the Navy Officers’ Mess at 78 Lisgar St. in Ottawa. In addition, an over 40 Medley contest will also be held.
Mr. Livingstone has had a long distinguished competition career winning many solo prizes including both Gold Medals and the coveted Clasp at the Northern Meeting. Twice. Mr. Livingstone also led the 78th Fraser Highlanders as Pipe Major of the first non-Scottish band ever to win the World Pipe Band Championships in 1987. The band travelled 16 times to the worlds and made the top 6 on 12 occasions. In addition, the band has won the North American Pipe Band Championship at Maxville, Ontario and the Canadian Pipe Band Championship at Cambridge, Ontario, an unprecedented 12 times each. A tremendous record by all accounts!
