What tradition, excellence, and friendship sound link.

The Macdonald Pipe Band of Pittsburgh, Inc. is one of the region’s oldest active pipe bands. Together, as friends and fellow musicians, we draw inspiration from centuries of tradition in our mission to further the Scottish art of bagpiping and drumming for the enjoyment of today’s audiences. We are “the pipes of Pittsburgh.”

New Members Welcome
