Welcome from the Prairie Pipe Band Association of Manitoba! PPBAM is the governing body of all solo player and pipe band competitions in Manitoba . Our mission is to promote and sustain the Highland Arts of bagpiping and drumming.


Scholarship Awards

Prairie Pipe Band Association of Manitoba is pleased to announce the winners of three youth piping and drumming scholarships.  Congratulations to Kyle Kyrzyk, Norah Eldridge and Hartley Eldridge!  All three are members of Lord Selkirk RFM Pipe Band, and hope to attend either Sound Advice in Regina, SK or Piping Hot Summer Drummer in BC this summer.


Congratulations to everyone who applied. The high quality of applicants made this a very difficult decision.  PPBAM looks forward to providing many more scholarships for developing young pipers and drummers in the years to come.


Our new website is being reconstructed from archives. Please have patience as we get all our links  connected and information posted. 

A Message From the President

Dear PPBAM Members

Due to the Public Health restrictions in the Province of Manitoba, PPBAM has made the decision not to sanction any in-person Pipe Band competitions this year. 

Please stay safe.
