It's time to embrace Your Inner Scotsman! Alaska Celtic Pipes & Drums, under the leadership of Pipe Major Aja Stewart, are now seeking Pipers and Drummers who would like to play with our Band. We want to increase the size of our award-winning Drumline, so if you are already familiar with drumming (snare, tenor, or bass,) OR if you want to learn to play, we would like to hear from you! We would like to extend a cordial invitation to anyone who would like to learn to play bagpipes or drums, to FREE lessons with our Band. You don't have to be Scottish, or even have any musical background, to start. We firmly believe that you're never too old to learn; we have active students and performing members of the Band ranging in age from 7 to 71!
We are a grade IV competing, family-oriented Pipe Band, established in 2005, and we are very active in supporting our community with music at parades, concerts, and other special events. Our purpose is to promote the rich cultural heritage of Great Highland Bagpipe music, and to have FUN doing it! ACPD provides free instruction in piping and drumming, with Band practice to follow, every Friday evening at 5:00 and 5:45 pm at Eagle River Presbyterian Church, 12836 Old Glenn Highway, in Eagle River. Phenomenal!
We are starting our new tune list for the coming year, so this is a great time to come out to our lessons and practice. Support your local Pipe Band!
