The Scots Highland Pipes and Drums Band is based in Northern Worcester County in Massachusetts.  We have performances throughout the Montachusett region and rest of New England.  Our events and participation are to perform as a band and to educate the general public in piping, drumming, and other art forms associated with Scottish and Celtic culture.  We perform both publicly and privately, and instruct those interested in piping and drumming.

The mission of  Scots Highland Pipes & Drums is to:
  • Preserve and promote Scottish and Celtic heritage through the promotion of pipe music,
    traditional Scottish arts and culture.
  • Provide members with good principles and methods of pipe and drum playing by offering
    training in the art of piping, drumming and band participation.
  • Contribute to the educational and cultural assets of the community by musical presentations
    and performances, parades, competitions, and other public and private performances.
