History

The Twin Cities Metro Pipe Band was founded in 1999 by pipers and drummers with a desire to develop a band devoted to perfecting the music of bagpipe and Highland snare and, above all, to having fun.

Our goal has been to create a band that is musically creative, technically superior and socially enjoyable.

The band wears the ancient Clark Tartan. Our drum corps uses Pearl Pipe Band Snares and Hosbilt bass and mid drums.

The pipe corps plays McCallum chanters and uses Ross chanter reeds. We use Kinnaird and Canning drone reeds and Gannaway pipe bags.
