This is an article about the Heidelberg & District Pipes and Drums

For those of you who might not know, Willie McCallum is
one of the foremost competing pipers in the world today. A native of Campbeltown, Kintyre, Willie has won almost every prize in solo piping and several times over. Willie's list of achievements in the competitive field is extensive and include the following highlights: Glenfiddich World Championship, 8 times; Gold Medal, Northern Meeting, Inverness; Gold Medal, Argyllshire Gathering, Oban; Former Winners MSR, Northern Meeting, Inverness, twice; Former Winners MSR, Argyllshire Gathering, Oban, 4 times; The Bratach Gorm, London, 3 times; Donald Macleod Memorial, Stornoway, 7 times; Dr. Dan Reid Memorial, San Francisco, 7 times. He also has long and successful pipe band experience and was a member of the Scottish Power Pipe Band, winning three major championships. Willie is in demand as a recitalist, adjudicator and teacher and has five solo recordings to his credit, in addition to his appearance on a number of compilation albums recorded live at recitals and competitions. He received his main tuition from his uncles Ronald McCallum and Hugh A. McCallum and also came under the guidance of Ronald McCallum, MBE, Piper to The Duke of Argyll. In recent years, several of his students have gained high placings at the major piping gatherings at Oban, Inverness and London.
