The Nashville Pipes and Drums is a family-friendly, non-profit community organization established to preserve and promote the sound of the Great Highland bagpipes and Scottish drums. We have members of all ages and provide a local basis for people interested in learning and being a part of a group that embraces the music of their Scottish heritage.
We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization available for events within the Middle TN region. We are sanctioned by the Eastern United States Pipe Band Association, actively competing in Grade IV competitions throughout the Southeast. Our group has won numerous awards, including the 2000 and 2001 US Open Pipe Band Championships.
With performances for names such as Amy Grant, Michael W. Smith, Nashville Symphony, The Chieftans, and Billy Graham, our group is available to provide quality service for your venue. Whether you are interested in the band or a single performer, we will be glad to assist you.
The band is always recruiting new members. If you already have playing experience please contact our Pipe Major for a meeting/audition. If you are interested in learning to play bagpipes or Scottish drums, we offer free group lessons and access to quality instructors. Feel free to stop by a rehearsal.
