Bagpipe Amnesty

Piper playing bagpipe

We don't have enough bagpipes to play!

If you or your family member have an old set of bagpipes lying under a bed or tucked away in the attic, let us rescue them and get them back into action.  This 'Amnesty' will give new life to old pipes;  a classic recycling program. 

With our ongoing youth teaching program aptly called "The Big Noise" we have a roster of young pipers that need your assistance.  You can enable them to fill the ranks and participate in the music program of the NRPS Pipes & Drums.

Contact Pipe Major Peter MacKenzie and he will discuss in detail the good things that can be done with your unused bagpipes.
