Formed in 1927 the bands main aim is promoting traditional Pipe Band music in the Mid Argyll area, we have an established teaching programme and almost all of the current band have been brought through this process. Throughout the year the band performs at many local community events from Tarbert to Inveraray and up to Kilmartin. In the summer months the band also competes in major competitions, giving local musicians the opportunity to test themselves against other players from around the world
The Pipe Band provides young people the opportunity to become highly skilled and talented musicians who are more than able to compete at International level. But we are much more than a band, we are a family of commited musicians, instructors and volunteers whose passion and support reach out into the heart of the community we live in, whether through organising and performing at local events or proudly representing our West Coast community at competitions across the country
As well as my son improving his musical skills, he has become part of a team and I see that as vital to life. The MAPB are doing a great job of providing positive activities which not only benefit the youth but the whole community, through their support of events with their playing.
Joining the band has provided us with many great opportunities such as travelling around the country to compete & playing for events in and around the local community which also allows us to improve for future performances. As well as the opportunities the band provides, it has also been a great experience making friends & meeting other pipe bands along the way
