Individual Pipers encouraged to play for VE75

It is during difficult times like these that the things we value most take on even more importance. At this point, we would like to continue to encourage pipers to say “thank you” and pay ‘tribute’ to the millions that gave so much to ensure we all enjoy and share the freedom we have today. Pipers can still take part by undertaking the playing of Battle’s O’er and the optional tune, VE 75 Years, at 3pm local time in the country they are in, on 8th May.

  1. Always follow local guidelines and current advice laid out by your government.
  2. Do not do anything you are not comfortable doing.
  3. Pipers should undertake this event ALONE. Where bands were gathering, we strongly suggest that you consider encouraging your pipers to play solo in safe locations such as their home.
  4. If you are unable to access your original location, may I suggest you play at home? Bagpipes are an excellent instrument that can help broadcast the moment the war in Europe ended. We have an opportunity to play within the community while remaining safe. Your friends and neighbours will be able to hear the pipes coming from gardens, doorsteps and dwellings nearby.
  5. For current reasons you will understand, it is not recommended you gather as a band. Consider creating your own social media video post of you playing the tune that you can share amongst your friends and the rest of the world. Don’t forget to use #veday75

9 Members of CVPBS joined the massed band at the BC Lions Salute to Veterans. The band had over 100 participants, and was well received. A great time was had by all. Maybe the Lions will win next time.

Fish is getting high 5s from the players as they take to the field.

2019 May Day a great success

A full turnout by the band combined with perfect temperate weather, a welcoming community, and fun camaraderie between the bands in the post parade pub crawl resulted in a memorable day. Thanks to all who attended, those who fed us, and those who stood by our side in support.
