Always present at Highland Games – Massed Pipe Bands are an outstanding spectacle with immaculate kilted pipers and drummers.
Each band competes in various sections – bands are graded. They are assessed on uniform, marching and overall presentation and of course, their music. Each band has a Drum Major and a Pipe Major.
There are Pipe bands in most countries of the world, as wherever Scots emigrated to – more followed – and the Scottish traditions were kept alive.
Many Australian Pipe bands practice hard achieving a standard, and some of our bands even travel to Scotland for the World Pipe Band Championships.
