Jamie Troy is gracing the cover of the newest edition of Piping Today Magazine (http://www.thepipingcentre.co.uk/piping-today-magazine/) and is featured inside in an article! Jamie has been both a drumming and piping judge at the Summerside Highland Gathering for the past two years. Jamie won the coveted Silver Medal at this year's Argyllshire Gathering in Oban, Scotland in August. He just isn't an extremely talented piper and drummer but he also makes the famed Troy Reeds (http://jwtreeds.com/) along with his father, Jamie Senior (who was also a judge at the 2013 Summerside Highland Gathering and a judge at the inaugural Celtic Idol). Looking good, Jamie!
