bagpipe classes to resume


Following on from the success of the highland bagpipe and drumming tuition held in 2014, Drumlough Highland Pipe Band has announced that it is holding further bagpipe and drumming tuition classes again during 2015.

The bagpipe tuition will run on Tuesday nights for a period of 20 weeks beginning on Tuesday, February 3. It will take place in Drumlough Orange Hall from 7.30pm to 9.30pm each night.

The drumming tuition will also run for a period of 20 weeks on Wednesday nights, although this will begin later in the year. Please keep an eye out in the Banbridge Leader, the Band’s Facebook page or the Band’s website for further details of this.

The tuition is open to all within the local community, and everyone will be made very welcome. Light refreshments will also be provided for the participants.

A spokesperson for the band said: “Following on from the success of the highland bagpipe and drumming tuition last year, we are delighted to be able to provide the local community with further bagpipe and drumming tuition this year again.

“This activity has been made possible by the support of the Ulster-Scots Agency which has meant that once again, the cost to the participants has been kept to a minimum of 50p per night.

“The tuition classes are open to all and will be aimed at providing a structured program of learning through experienced tutors to new learners and also those wishing to improve basic skills
