From the Chairman


I am pleased to report that we have had another successful year, with membership increasing steadily. There are many reasons for this, some practical, such as the ability to join online and the availability of a pdf version of Chanter, but I am sure that it is mostly due to a combination of a high quality journal, a well-respected annual festival, an active Facebook page and the generally raised profile of our beloved instrument.

We are settling into our new website, including making available articles from our thirty year history. If you spot something inaccurate, garbled or missing, or if you want to volunteer to help us improve our site, please mail info@bagpipesociety.
