After a hiatus of more than 25 years, The Eagle Pipers’ Society has been resurrected by three piping stalwarts intent on putting Edinburgh piping back on the map.
Colin MacLellan, Euan Anderson and Iain Speirs are well known in piping circles and have a long record of success in both solo piping and with pipe bands. Each of their fathers, Capt. John MacLellan, MBE, James Anderson and Tom Speirs were leading lights in piping and prominent committee members of The Eagle Pipers’ Society in its heyday.
As it was in the beginning, the Society today is open to anyone with an interest in the Great Highland Bagpipe and we invite you to join us to play, to listen or simply to enjoy good company.
The Eagle Pipers’ Society meets throughout the year at the Scots Guards Club on Clifton Terrace, Haymarket in Edinburgh’s West End. The venue is ideal for playing and listening to pipes, as well as for its location, opposite Haymarket Train station, close to major bus routes and with ample parking on the surrounding streets or at Morrison Street car park.
Meetings start at 8.00pm and are held every other Tuesday. Check on the website for updates.
