'... hornpipes, jigs, strathspeys, and reels, Put life and mettle in their heels'...... Robert Burns
Welcome to Haddington Pipe Band
Haddington Pipe Band is a community band, dedicated to promoting piping and drumming in East Lothian and to providing entertainment at local events such as gala days, community and charity events, and farmers' markets. In November 2009, we were delighted to be chosen as the Scottish Pipe Band of the Year at the MG Alba Scots Trad Music Awards.
The band runs classes for beginners and tuition for the more advanced players. There is a full range of ages and abilities within the band and encouragement is given at all levels. New members are always welcome, please contact the band secretary for further information.
From our extensive range of traditional marches, jigs and slow airs a new repertoire is chosen
each season. Although new tunes are always appreciated by our audiences, the old favourites
are expected too and are always practiced at our regular band practice evenings.
Bookings are available throughout the year for the full band or individual pipers for that special occasion. Details and further information can be found on our Events Diary page.
