An Online Odyssey


On 4th March 2020, Roger Landes and I were wrapping up the last details of the fifth International Bagpipe Conference, due to take place on 14th and 15th March 2020 at Harvard University in Boston, USA. We had planned a wonderful line up of speakers, all presenting on the subject of bagpipes and diaspora, chosen in honour of our friends from the Americas, many of whom practice piping traditions linked to their heritage.

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.
