Join the Band

Our organization is dedicated to furthering Celtic arts and traditions of piping and drumming by performances, competitions, instruction, and education. Our members are united by an appreciation of piping and drumming and membership is open to persons who share this sentiment. Through performance, competition, and teaching, the band promotes this worthy goal.

The band makes an effort to tailor programs to meet the needs and abilities of those interested in learning to play the highland bagpipe or Scottish side drum, tenor drum, or bass drum. While the instruction is free for a time, students are asked to purchase those items to help them on their way to performing on the large instrument. This means a book and practice chanter for pipers, drum sticks and practice pad for snare (side) drum and padded mallets for tenor and bass drummers. The piping and drumming instructors will advise you on what to purchase, the estimate of cost and a reliable source.

The band meets to rehearse on Sundays from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. at St. Andrew Episcopal Church, 2233 Woodbourne Avenue, Louisville, KY 40205.

Dates and times for our rehearsals are always subject to change. This is especially true during the highland game competition season and the summer months of June and July. If in doubt, please confirm with a band officer before traveling significant distances. Go to the officers page, here.
