The Scunthorpe and District Pipe Band was formed in 1991, making the band fairly young in comparison to some others, but it is none the less a very successful and prosperous band.
The band has worked hard, enabling them to buy all their own equipment and uniform, making the band look very professional. The band has been able to purchase new instruments, meaning they can bring a more crisp, clearer sound of Scotland all over the country.
The band has played at a number of interesting venues in it’s lifetime, from small engagements such as Appleby Show in Lincolnshire, to the Marie Curie Mass Pipe Band parades in Edinburgh & Northampton. Thanks to the hard work from all the members of the band, the band has gone from strength to strength. The band decided to start competing in 2006 and has been a regular in the prizes each year since then.
The band wears Modern Royal Stewart tartan kilts, complimented by green ties and waistcoats. The band uniform is made and provided by one of the top kilt makers in Scotland, The Kilt and Suit Company of Hamilton. Tel:(01698)281851
