This event sounds like it would have been fun to attend. How did it go?

Good to hear McPhee is still up there playing with the best. I used to listen to him back in the day at solo comps and played his reeds in my own solo's! I also remember as a boy he taught at one of the Piping Centre summer courses and was class.
