We are a local community band based in Balerno. We practice on a Friday evening from 7pm to 9:30pm in Balerno Community Centre.


As you can see from the picture of the Pipe Major (just before he was carted away), this is a happy band & we are always looking for new members to increase this feeling of happiness; catering for learners & professionals alike. If you find that you have nothing to do on a Friday night, then why not pop along (bring along your thickest skin, you will need it). You might even get a cuppa & if extremely lucky a choccy biccy or some cake.


We play at various gala days within the Lothians & Fife. The band have also played at festivals throughout Europe, with some members of the band regularly travelling to New York to join in the Tartan Day Parade (& after parade festivities!)


The band are available for engagements at any time of the year & currently have availablity in 2016. If you don't want to learn yourself, & would like to hire the full band, mini band or a single piper/drummer, you can use the form on the contact page & we will be more than happy to help you with your arrangements. Alternatively, contact us through Facebook by getting the link on the 'LINKS' page..
