Jean Russell It has been a banner season for mid-section drummer Jean Russell.  Not only did Jean place 2nd out of 41 drummers in EUSPBA – she entered the first-ever World Online Piping & Drumming Championships and placed FIRSTin Grade 5 Tenor 2/4 March.   The event was judged by  Michael O’Neil – tenor drummer with the Grade 1 Simon Fraser University Pipe Band.  The contest was put on by Jori Chisholm from his website – bagpipelessons.com – as an exciting and fun format to enjoy the benefits of global competition without expensive and time-consuming travel.  On top of a great season Jean is now instructing our newest class of flourishing mid-section drummers.   Congrats to a couple friends of the band on their wins – Amber Bartholomeusz and Andrew Kerr!
