Murray Wimbledon triumph inspires bagpipe competition


Andy Murray’s historic Wimbledon win is to be commemorated with a special bagpipe tune.

Following the Scots’ triumph on Sunday, a composing competition for a bagpipe tune by The College of Piping in Glasgow has now been announced.

The idea has received the backing of Stuart McMillan MSP, himself a piper.  Mr McMillan who represents the West of Scotland said the resulting tune was destined to be a “smash”.

Mr McMillan, the only MSP who is a piper, said:

“A pipe tune for Andy Murray is a fantastic idea by the College of Piping, and they are to be congratulated for such a creative initiative.  I am sure it will capture the public’s imagination – and it’s bound to be a smash!

“Andy Murray has made history with his outstanding Wimbledon victory, his second Grand Slam, and his Olympic Gold.  I have no doubt that the calibre of tunes that will be composed will be befitting of Andy’s phenomenal achievements.”
