About the Bagpipe Society

The Bagpipe Society was formed in 1986 to bring together players, makers, researchers and people who love the bagpipes.

  • to encourage more people to take up the bagpipes
  • to help players share tunes and techniques
  • to help beginners find expert tuition
  • to inform people about the diversity of bagpipes played today
  • to inform people about the social and cultural history of this important folk instrument
  • to encourage research into all aspects of piping
  • to help people make their own pipes
  • to help foster better cultural understanding through an appreciation of the many and varied piping traditions of the world
