Celtic Nations Pipes and Drums is a diverse group of musicians dedicated to the preservation and celebration of the Celtic Heritage and the music of The Great Highland Bagpipe accompanied by Highland pipe-band style Drumming. As a teaching organization, the Band has created an atmosphere where all of its Members, regardless of experience, enjoy the fellowship of the group. Performances portray the high value the Band places on music. Each Member is dedicated to continually making Celtic Nations Pipes and Drums an organization where everyone is encouraged to be their very best.
Since our founding in 2002, we've become pretty well-rounded. In addition to traditional parades, we’re regularly hired for performances and also compete at Highland Games in the region. We're most proud of having formed a combined teaching and mutually beneficial relationships with other pipe bands in the area.
We are also competing members of the Midwest Bagpipe Association.
Special performances: In addition to our regularly scheduled performances and parades, our band has repeatedly been invited to play with world-famous music groups including THE RED HOT CHILI PIPERS, GAELIC STORM, THE CHIEFTAINS, and THE PIANO GUYS! We are equipped with concert-scale bagpipe chanters so if you’re seeking a bagpipe group to enhance your performance, contact us!
