IP Artist Ensemble Bagad Cap Caval from Ploemeur, France was crowned the 2017 World Bagad Champions for the 3rd year in a row and the 6th time over the last decade. The Champions of Brittany, France also took the top prize in Percussion as well as Drum Corps (battery) for the 2017 season. 

IP Pipe Band Products Specialist and Cap Caval Percussionist, Michael Eagle, alongside the Music Directors of Cap Caval, Mr. Kenan Sicard and his brother Tangi Sicard. Kenan and Tangi have arranged for Cap Caval for nearly 15 years and have lead the way in Innovation for Bagad music of the 21st century with now 6 Championship seasons.  

The grand prize for Bagads is the "Maout" (mmm-out), which is the traditional Gaelic Breton word for 'ram'. The Maout is passed to each Champion ensemble each year unless it is won 3 years in a row. The Bagad then gets to keep the "Maout" forever. Bagad Cap Caval now has 2 different Maouts, and is one of only two Bagads in history to do so.
