Ulster Scottish Pipe Band is a 501C3 Non-Profit Organization
Our first annual Pocono Workshop was a huge success! Nearly 50 pipers and drummers attended. Sincere thanks to the instructors, the workshop staff, and to everyone who supported us by attending. Sincere thanks to all the bands who sent a group of folks to the workshop including St. Columcille, Rampant Lion, Hawk Mountain Highlanders, Roisin Dubh, Cameron Highlanders and Bergen Irish. As soon as we have a firm date for next year’s workshop, we’ll post it on the workshop page.
