Dunoon Argyll Pipe Band are delighted to announce that they will be competing in Grade 3B for the 2010 season. This is the second year in a row that we have been able to move up to a higher grade, and we are looking forward to the new challenge!
Thanks to everyone who continues to support the band and take an interest in what we are doing. We will endeavour to keep the website up to date better this year than last year, so that people know what we are up to !!
Here is the full band in action for the first time in 2009. (missing a tenor drummer and a piper). The band played at the Hunter's Quay Holiday Village on Saturday 21st March, and enjoyed the opportunity to put a performance together with our new players for this season, ie Stuart Kelly, Roddy McIntyre, Lorna Gillan, all returnee's, John McInnes, John Duncan and Claire Hamilton, who hasn't played with a band before. Welcome to you all! More pictures from this night can be found in the Info and News section.

DUNOON ARGYLL PIPE BAND - 2008
Here is this year's competing band, who will play in Grade 4B. Here's hoping for a season of good performances, great weather, and a few prizes too (we hope!)
Cheer up troops - it's not raining this year - yet! This was at the march past at Gourock, where the band won grade 4. What a difference a trophy can make!!
Meet our drum corps, minus our bass player..plus 2 pipers, one at each end! Now where are those pipers??!!
Ah, Dumbarton Rock looks grand in the background. Our Irish guest (with the jacket on) doesn't seem to be as hardy as us Scots! This was a good day weatherwise Des! If you want to play with us, you need to get acclimatized! We even do rain! The pipers came 3rd overall at the Scottish Championships, with the band being placed 6th overall. A great start to the season.
