DTSPB Practices in Glasgow, Scotland


As part of the long term development of the band, we have taken the decision to have a regional band practice held in the United Kingdom, with practices being taken by Pipe Corporal Gary Nimmo. This regional group meets once a month at the historic College of Piping in Glasgow. In between practices, there are regular Skype sessions and recordings submitted from the players to ensure the band stays on the same music wavelength. To date the band now has an additional 15 pipers based in the UK, with members from Scotland, England, Northern Ireland and Eire.


Pipe Major David Hilder, will travel regularly from Vancouver to Glasgow to assist and oversee the practices, in particular to keep strong bonds between the two groups. The two groups will combine for the BC Indoor Championships, the Championships at Bellingham in June and The UK Championships in Belfast in June.
