Wallace Bagpipes pins name to CLASP

Wallace-BagpipesThe National Piping Centre is pleased to announce that Wallace Bagpipes will be the main CLASP sponsor for the 2016-17 season of events.

‘We are extremely honored to support and work with The CLASP.” said Craig Munro of Wallace Bagpipes. “It’s a fantastic organization which helps raise the standard and profile of adult amateurs worldwide. We feel this will not only help strengthen our position in the market place but also see it as an opportunity to give something back to a section of the worldwide piping community often overlooked in our industry with the majority of the current focus being on juveniles or professional events. At Wallace Bagpipes it’s about the right opportunity, not every opportunity!’

CLASP organiser Margaret Dunn said “We’re delighted with the sponsorship! It will allow the CLASP to grow and also gives competitors the opportunity to win some high quality products from Wallace Bagpipes.”

CLASP Workshop Weekend 14th & 15th October 2016

Open to any enthusiastic amateur Bagpipers!

Due to the success of the April CLASP workshop weekend we are excited to announce that we will be holding another weekend in October, at The National Piping Centre, which will further work on the tunes that you have chosen to play for competition.

The dates are Friday 14th and Saturday 15th of October.

So far our guest instructors will include Willie McCallum and Dr. Jack Taylor, with more to be announced. Both Piobaireachd Set tunes, and light music will be worked on
in small groups. This will allow students to gain as much individual attention as needed with their selected competition/performance tunes.

We hope you can join us!
