Membership of the Piobaireachd Society is open to all with an interest in the classical music of the great Highland bagpipe, ceol mor, great music, or, as it is best known today, ‘piobaireachd’ pronounced, approximately, ‘pee-per-ach’.

Memberships are available for Individual £15 (one year) or £40 (three years), Student £5 (one year), and Affiliate £15 or £40 (one or three years). There is no qualification for membership other than an interest in the music and the Society and its aims and ambitions.

The benefits of membership are many, not least of which is the knowledge that you are doing something to further this ancient music by supporting the Society’s work in sourcing manuscripts, publishing our books, teaching the music and sponsoring competitions and recitals of ceol mor.

There are many other benefits which include reductions on the cost of merchandise and access to the whole range of recordings of piobaireachd in our sound archive.

Affiliate Membership is open to all piping societies, bands, music clubs, regimental associations and teaching institutions. All the benefits of membership are then available to one office bearer who can use them for the benefit of their group. In addition the group can use the Society logo on their website and link it to the PS site.
