Grace Notes


Membership of the Society slowly creeps up year on year and the new joiners always outweigh the non-renewals. I often wonder what makes someone join The Bagpipe Society and I like to think that for many, the impetus for joining is to have four journals a year pop through their letterbox. In my role as editor of Chanter, I aim to meet the aims of the Society by publishing articles informing on the diversity of bagpipes and their social and cultural history and encouraging research into all aspects of piping.

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.
