News Related to this Website We have 12 Months to live
Posted by Drummerboy on Wednesday, June 03, 2015 (23:10:56) (244 reads)

Hi all,
so this website has been running for 12 years now, but it's time for me to let it go.
I have just renewed the domain name for another year, but after that I will not renew again.

If someone wants to take the website, I'm happy to hand it over to someone who knows what they are doing.
Otherwise the site will die a slow death in 12 months time.

Band Related News Pipe Bands WA promote championships with flash mob
Posted by MalcolmMacLean on Thursday, March 20, 2014 (21:03:19) (522 reads)

Pipe Bands WA staged a surprise flash mob stunt at Curtin University as a novel way to publicise its upcoming State Championships. Students were curious to watch a lone drummer walk out onto the courtyard near the library building, and then a little astonished when a young female student picked up bagpipes to play along. But when seven separate pipe bands started marching from different directions of the campus, the whole university suddenly became engaged.

The 45 pipers and drummers kept in perfect sync playing the tune Highland Cathedral, and formed a giant crescent shape to entertain the gathered crowd.

The flash mob video will be used on social media to spread the news that the State Pipe Band Championships are from noon to 4pm on Saturday, March 29, at Edinburgh Oval at the entrance to Curtin University. The YouTube video can be seen at

VALE: Colin V. Cairns (Australia) 22.08.1929 – 30.10.2013
Posted by piobaire24 on Friday, February 07, 2014 (20:55:51) (414 reads)

Colin died peacefully at home on Wednesday 30 October 2013.

Mentored by Geoff Ross, Colin, with Iain Indian, invented one of the first synthetic drone reeds which became popular in the mid/late-1980s.

Colin has been an inspiration to those of us who studied ceol mor and the bagpipe in general. His contribution to the world of piping over many years will be sadly missed.
