Kirkwall City Pipe Band

From stirring marches to poignant slow airs, Kirkwall City Pipe Band has a repertoire to suit every musical taste. Their musical talents extend beyond bagpipes and drums, and in their concert performances they add an extra dimension with backing instruments and vocals.

Celebrating their centenary in 2019, the KCPB is a thriving community band. Led by Pipe Major Laurence Tait, they also have an impressive collection of silverware, and a strong, dedicated following throughout the isles. In celebration of their 100th year, the band perform as part of New York City’s Tartan Week parade, in April, and have a host of anniversary celebrations planned throughout the year.
