Regina piper Scott Young (RCMP Pipes & Drums) has organized the Regina Pipers' Club, which is described as:
"We aim to provide you with a way of keeping your pipes going strong through our long winter. If anyone out there is interested in performing, please contact the page."
Mark your calendar for the Pipers’ Club Friday night sessions! We’ll have guest performers each night, and then it’s up to you! Bring your pipes for a tune, or just enjoy the music and chat.
This is for anyone interested in playing or listening to pipe music! Fun for all ages and skill levels. Bring your smallpipes/whistles etc. and there will be a chance
to have some tunes together for anyone who wants.
September 22 • October 13 • November 24 • January 12 • February 9
at the Elks Club. [MAP LINK]
Feel free to join the Facebook page for the club to get updates and news of activities.
