Pipe Bands

Pipe bands were first formed in the 1850s. During the height of Highland life, pipers held an important place in society, and the skill of piping was passed through generations within families. When the traditional Highland lifestyle began to subside, many pipers joined Highland regiments of the British army, finding virtually no other alternatives for employment. This trend actually helped preserve pipe music when it appeared it was in danger of becoming extinct.
