Barra Pipers Class

Thanks to our 2020 Instructors and students for a great summer camp via Zoom. We had a large number of students from many parts of North America, and they enjoyed world-class instruction from:

PIPING:  CALLUM BEAUMONT  •  BRUCE GANDY  • RODDY MACLEOD, M.B.E. •  DANIELLE MILLAR  • RYAN MACDONALD

DRUMMING:  J. REID MAXWELL  •  ELIZABETH SHAW  •  RUARIDH MACDONALD • BLAIR T. BROWN

SPECIAL GUEST PRESENTERS: FRED MORRISON • STUART MCCALLUM • KENNY MACLEOD

It was a great mix of people and a lot of fun and learning took place, especially given the "learning at a distance" medium.

This was the 18th year of the school since it was re-formatted in 2004.

Saskatchewan Pipe Bands: Teaching Pipes and Drums!!

Pipe Bands in Saskatchewan—A Proud History
Early settlers brought piping and Scottish cultural traditions to many communities in Saskatchewan, and local pipe bands are carrying on those traditions today. 

The Highland bagpipes were heard at weddings, funerals, dances and parades across Saskatchewan in the early years, and then during World War I many of our Saskatchewan Regiments had pipe bands and pipers who inspired, consoled and entertained our soldiers. The South Saskatchewan Regiment, the 96th Highlanders, and the South Saskatchewan Light Horse all had great pipe bands.

Registration for new pipe band beginners is now! Contact your local pipe band .
