Practical Pipers Society
Let's take a look at the many bands, which came to my attention whilst I was doing some research into the area:
I've done the leg work, but can you help me to put the flesh on this rather sizeable skeleton?
In the following list, I have set out all of the bands that have existed in the Dundee, Perth and Angus Area, but would be delighted to add any information I can get.
Do you know the history of the band? The Tartan worn? The list of Pipe Majors etc?
