Membership of the Band is open to anyone genuinely interested in Pipe Band music.

If you are new to piping / drumming then please be assured that advice will be given about the standard of equipment which needs to be purchased. We sell chanters and tutor books at advantageous prices. When it comes to playing pipes it may be possible to have a loan of a set for a short time but eventually a set of pipes will need to be bought.  Drums and harnesses are supplied by the band.

If you are a new learner you will be given a few weeks to see if piping / drumming is for you without any outlay on tutor books. The band doesn’t stock practice chanters so you will be required to buy one before your first lesson with the band.

After your trial period you will need to purchase the required tutor book from the band if you do not already have one.

Those with some piping or drumming experience are welcome to come along to our practices. Hopefully, you will like what you see and join the band!
