West Kootenay Pipers’ Association

The West Kootenay region of British Columbia is a sea of mountains and lakes, and, it would seem, of pipers. Many of these folk and their friends gather now and then to consult their muses by playing and listening to the sweet music of the pipes.

Early piping in the Kootenays,
Rossland’s first Pipeband, 1910

The music is continuous and Celtic; the pipes are great and small; the muses are consulted and sated --- well, at least for a day. Soon everyone must gather again to once more pay homage to the sweet music of the pipes.
