History of Alba Bagpipes
Alba Bagpipes was established by Barry Evans, a Scottish bagpiper with over 30 years experience. Early in 2010, Barry decided to join together his recent University degree with his passion for piping, with the result being Alba Bagpipes. Barry has been fortunate enough to play in some of the finest Pipe Bands the North East of Scotland has to offer including Grampian Police Pipe Band, Buchan Pipe Band and most recently Police Scotland Fife. In late 2016 Barry handed full reins of Alba Bagpipes to his younger brother Rikki Evans. The company continues to provide that professional excellent service which it based itself on at the very beginning.
