Bagpiping on Mothers Day

Filed under: Bagpipe Music — caber @ 1:00 PM
Mother’s day is may 11 and what better way to show mom your love than serenading her with music from a full bagpipe band. The Ogden Legion Pipe Band, dressed in full highland regalia, in Calgary Alberta offers to visit local mothers for a personal piping performance.

The Mother’s Day event is one of the main fundraisers for the decorated band, which was formed in 1972 as a Calgary area youth pipe band with members ages eight to 18 years. Sponsored by the Royal Canadian Legion, Ogden Branch No. 154 in southeast Calgary, the Ogden Legion Pipe Band has become a top-caliber band that competes nationally and internationally. It has been the Grade IV provincial champions for the past five consecutive years and has also won major awards and honors in Canada and Scotland.

Proceeds from the Mother’s Day Pipes and Roses event will help to send the Ogden Legion Pipe Band to Glasgow, Scotland, in August 2008 to compete in the World Pipe Band Championships.
