Good Company, Piping, and Meat Pies. What More Could One Ask For?
The Eagle Pipers’ Society was founded in Edinburgh, Scotland by John A. MacLellan, George Stoddart, and Pat Sandeman at the Eagle Bar (now the Ensign Ewart) in 1960. The Society would meet informally to enjoy a bevy and of course some light music and playing of the Ceol Mor. After a worthy period of activity, the Society went into hibernation until awakened recently by Colin MacLellan, Euan Anderson and Iain Speirs (all well known and accomplished pipers). The Society meets regularly in Edinburgh at the Scots Guards Club. For a full history, please visit The Eagle Pipers’ Society history web page
The second Canadian gathering of the Eagle Pipers’ Society is planned for Tuesday, March 6, 2012. Come enjoy an evening of light music and Piobaireachd with your friends and peers in a comfortable, non-competitive environment. And of course the customary traditional meat pies will be available for consumption. All are welcome!
