Detroit Highlanders have a long and interesting history
The Strathclyde Police Pipe Band. This is a Grade One pipe band playing the tunes:
The tune "Detroit Highlanders" was written by Archibald MacNeill (the blind piper from Glasgow) to honor the Scottish heritage in the Motor Detroit Michigan area during the the early 1920's.
We understand peoples lives are busy doing multiply chores. If nothing else, our practice sessions can be used as your practice session to help keep you involved and connected in the World of piping and/or drumming.
We are NOT here to recruit pipers or drummers away from their current band. It is very important these pipers and drummers continue to support their current pipe band.
This is a virtual pipe band. The participants suggest the tunes to learn and decide what events to play at. Participants are from other bands with people located in Grand Rapids (MI), Royal Oak(MI), Detroit(MI), Rochester(MI), Dearborn(MI), Ohio (OH). Grade level of these bagpipers range from "Grade 5" to "Grade 1".
What does a bagpipe band consist of?
