Statement from Canmore:
As you know the CANMORE® pipe bag is a technically advanced fabric pipe bag which is based on a specially developed GORE-TEX® membrane from W.L Gore and Associates (UK) Ltd.
Recently we were advised by W L Gore and Associates that the fabric we currently purchase from them will no longer be manufactured at their facility. Over the last few months, we have been liaising with them regarding an alternative fabric.
We now have a new fabric which you should start to notice from the end of February 2014. We would like to reassure you that the new fabric has the same technical specification as our previous fabric.
The only change you should notice is that all our bags will now be in the colour black, we will no longer supply the Canmore pipe bag in the colour green. I can confirm that this makes no difference to either the technical aspect or indeed quality of the Canmore pipe bag.
We have taken this as an opportunity to move forward and over the next few months you will also notice that all our bags will have a new heat sealed Canmore Logo, this will replace the old original sew in labels.
Nothing else has changed, we give our guarantee that our bags will continue to be manufactured in the same way using the new advanced GORE-TEX® fabric (sold exclusively to Canmore Pipe Bags Ltd), we will continue to manufacture to the same high quality standard.

This innovative product is the result of a collabrative project between Ceol Mor Software & Publishing and the National Piping Centre, Scotland. Building on the success of the Bagpipe Tutor Book produced by the NPC, learners now have the option of purchasing a fully digital version of this publication, now with enhanced functionality.
Not only is this product a fully digital publication, it is also a tutor for learning the Highland Bagpipe. It contains embedded video clips of the exercises as well as audio hints and tips from the director of music, who is also one of the top players in the world. Video clips of every exercise and tune being played through PiobMasterPro are also included. This really is a quantum leap from a standard publication

The National Piping Centre was delighted to be awarded Venue of the Year after over a decade of hosting countless events, concerts, gigs and more. The centre also hosts the annual Piping Live! Festival which sees over 10,000 visitors each year come in to Glasgow for hundreds of piping events.
Broadcasted live on BBC ALBA, the awards- organised by Hands Up for Trad- saw stars of the Scottish music scene flock to Aberdeen’s Music Hall to celebrate and honour the very best of traditional Scottish talent. This year’s glamorous ceremony was hosted by Mary Ann Kennedy and Tony Kearney. Winners of the prestigious awards were selected by almost 90,000 public votes.
Donald Campbell, Chief Executive of event sponsors MG ALBA says: “The Trads recognize those that have achieved excellence and we at MG ALBA are delighted to have been involved once again as sponsors.”
Hot off the release of their latest album ‘The Cauld Wind’ Finlay MacDonald and Chris Stout come to Glasgow as part of their Scottish Tour to play an intimate acoustic concert featuring both new material and classic tunes. Joined by the fantastic Ross Martin on guitar, this dynamic and charismatic duo are not to be missed.
This musical experience is not only a must for both fiddle and pipe enthusiasts but for all fans of traditional music in one of its purest forms.
Traditional music magazine The Living Tradition said that Chris and Finlay were an ‘unfeasibly talented duo‘ and that they ‘create sounds that weave together beautifully and demand that you sit up and listen’.
Chris Stout is nominated for Instrumentalist of the Year at the MG ALBA Scots Trad Music Awards 2013, along with The National Piping Centre who are nominated as Venue of the Year.
