Baton Rouge Pipes And Drums

About Us

Baton Rouge Pipes and Drums is a Baton Rouge, Louisiana-area Scottish bagpipe and drum band. 

The Baton Rouge Pipes & Drums was founded in 2008 to meet a long-standing need for a fun-focused, family-oriented, non-competitive ("free & independent") Scottish bagpipes and drums band. We also strive to operate in a Christian atmosphere.tenors bagpipers baton rouge louisiana

The band offers instruction in bagpiping & drumming for all ages.  Scottish heritage is not required, only an interest in learning.  The founders of the band have at least ten, and often twenty or more years, of experience in their respective fields of expertise. 

If you are from the Baton Rouge area, you have probably seen our members in various parades, events, and festivals.  Our members are often found performing in weddings and funerals as well as patriotic events. 

The band has also provided the core of the Louisiana State Fire Marshal's Honor Guard Pipes & Drums when that group decided to expand its previous focus from a solo piper to a full band.  Their events are quite similar with more emphasis on supporting the efforts and sacrifices of firefighters.
