St. Andrew Pipes & Drums All

Kansas City, MO | Traditional

For over fifty years we have worked to preserve the traditional music of Scotland, and to further the Scottish arts in Kansas City and abroad. The band was founded in 1962 and incorporates the talents of over fifty musicians, ranging in ages from fourteen to over seventy. We are primarily a community-oriented band committed to furthering the development of piping and drumming in Kansas City and the Midwest. In addition to that, we currently field two competition bands: a grade IV band, and a grade V band. In addition to our many successes over the years in band events, including second place in piping at the World Pipe Band Championships (Grade 3-A 2001), many of our members have competed and taken prizes in some of the most prestigious solo piping and drumming contests in North America, with over eight of our members competing in the professional grade, and with several more competing at the grade one and two levels. But foremost, we pride ourselves in being a family-oriented organization.

The band actively supports the cultural diversity of Kansas City through participation in the Kansas City Highland Games, the Kansas City Ethnic Enrichment Festival, the Kirkin' of the Tartans at Grace and Holy Trinity Cathedral, The Kansas City St. Patrick's Day Parade, our services to the Kansas City St. Andrew Society, and many, many other events.
