Pipe Band Support

The Foundation purchased in 2015 a new set of drums for the Hawthorn City Pipe Band. The Band has just celebrated its 100th anniversary and as one of the oldest continuously active Pipe Bands in the world has developed an enviable standing in the pipe band movement.

We also purchased six sets of Scottish Smallpipes for the Scotch College Pipes and Drums. Smallpipes provide an opportunity for pipers to expand their musical experience beyond the pipe band and more traditional Great Highland bagpipes and play traditional Scottish folk music with other quieter acoustic instruments such as fiddles and guitars and New Inverness capes and Glengarries for the Old Scotch Pipes and Drums.
