Welcome to Comrie Pipe Band

Ar Canain's Ar Ceol - Our Language And Music

Comrie Pipe Band is based in Scotland in the village of Comrie, Perthshire.  The band plays as often as possible at local events including Comrie Fortnight and the famous Comrie Hogmanay Flambeaux Parade.

We continue to grow the band by nurturing starters and by encouraging local pipers to join us.

The band practises on Thursdays in Crieff Parish Church Hall from 7pm until 9pm during school term times and we would actively encourage pipers, drummers and non-players to come along and meet us.


Programme Summer 2018

The Band is continuing its rehearsal programme on Thursday evenings in the Crieff Parish Church Hall under Pipe Major Willie Nicol. The busy summer programme of events began on 31st March with the traditional Easter Parade in Comrie. This was followed by a busy round engagements throughout the summer months including the very busy Comrie Fortnight in late July/early August, and there was a very strong turnout of playing members for all these events. One or two of the learner pipers and drummers have graduated to full playing members but the Band is always on the lookout for new members who are already playing pipers or drummers to join. Although not a competing Band, it maintains a high standard of music and performance in carrying out a busy programme of playing engagements, and at the same time is a friendly and welcoming group who enjoy their music and an active social programme.
