2021 George Sherriff Memorial Invitational


2021 marks the 25th year for the George Sherriff Memorial Invitational. The pandemic made it necessary to cancel the event in 2020. The contest is up and running again this year but, with the pandemic and associated restrictions continuing, the event will be run virtually.

The plans are to return to an in person contest with a live audience in 2022 and to host the event at St. Paul's Presbyterian Church in Hamilton, Ontario.

The results from the virtual contest will be announced live on the George Sherriff Memorial Competition Facebook Page on November 20.

You can find a link here once the results have been determined and we're ready to go live on Facebook. You will be able to access the winning performances on the Facebook link.

A list of the 2021 competitors and their bios can be found here.

The Piobaireachd event will be adjudicated this year by Bruce Gandy and John Wilson. The 6/8 March and March/Strathspey/Reel events wil be adjudicated by Chris Armstrong and Richard Parkes MBE.
