Here are some current reviews:

St Thomas Episcopal Dedication CD
"I've purchased a number of pipe band CDs over the years, but the sound from this band is absolutely awesome. The person who arranged this music has gotten an absolutely fantastic balance between pipes and other instruments. There's only one thing missing - Scotland the Brave. That would be absolutely magnificent. Black Watch: Eat your heart out!"

Airstream Blowpipe
I just purchased one of these. While sad to take the pretty cocobola off my maclellan's, this blowpipe does not leak, has a great mouthpiece and is very comfortable to play.

Pipefest 2010

Pipefest occurs on August 7 & 8 2010. The event is taking place around the world with one of the largest massed pipe band parades in the world to raise money for cancer charities. There are events taking place in Edinburgh, New York, Hong Kong, Sydney and Ottawa.

The parade begins in Scotland where it will march through Edinburgh. As these pipers reach the finale of this stage of the event, bands in North America will begin in their areas.

The goal is to unite the piping and drumming world in a battle against cancer with a projected fundraising goal of 500,000 for cancer charities around the world.

The Canadian stage occurs in Ottawa on Saturday August 7th. The goal for this stage is to raise $100 000 for the Canadian Cancer Society. It is being organized by the Ottawa City Piping College.

If you have a PipeFest event happening in your area, let us know and we'll post it on our website and mention it in our newsletters.
