There is a solution!!
The Pinstripe Highlanders are an informal group of intermediate/advanced pipers that meet every Tuesday, either in the West End or at the Bank.
Of fine piping pedigree, having been established 30 years ago by P/M John Roe, the band would welcome any pipers (Kiwi, Aussie, whoever) based in London to come along for practice.
Unlike other bands we don't compete or need to fund raise so the time commitment suits most people that work in London . Big events are the London Highland Society Ball in March plus other events such as Poppy Day appeal.
We don't have a drum core but have no problem if a drummer wanted to come along to bash their sticks. Unfortunately we can't cater for learners, sorry. If you don't have your pipes with you then we could probably find some for you.
If you are, or anyone you know that could be, interested then please email me: firstname.lastname@example.org
