Welcome to the new blog for the ACPBA!

This blog will replace the traditional ACPBA newsletter with the goal of providing more current and consistent content that is of value to ACPBA members and supporters.  Here are some of the ways we hope to use the blog to accomplish this goal:

  • Promote accomplishments and activities of member bands and individuals
  • Discuss topics and issues that are important to members
  • Allow members to engage the ACPBA through comments and questions

Regional reports from the 2012 ACPBA Annual General Meeting have already been posted to provide an update on the past year’s activities across Atlantic Canada. We would love to have suggestions for future posts from our members. Please contact Krista McLellan ( to discuss potential blog postings.

Our next post will be from Sarah Simpson of the College of Piping Pipe Band (Grade 3). Sarah will be providing a “game day” account of her time at the 2012 George Sherriff Memorial Amateur Invitational Solo Piping Competition held this past November in Hamilton, Ontario where she took home an impressive 3rd place in the piobaireachd event. Way to go Sarah!
