A Brand New Year

It's a brand new year for the Portland Metro Youth Pipe Band!  Christmas and New Years have been celebrated, the Robert Burns Birthday gatherings will soon be over, and the band is busy working on new tunes for the upcoming year.  New players are always welcome, so contact us if you have someone who has always wanted to be a piper or a drummer...all are welcome!

It's not too early to join the band for Fall lessons!

Whew! What a Summer!

The band has been very busy competing at a number of Highland Games throughout the Pacific Northwest - attending Skagit Valley Highland Games, BC Highland Games, Portland Highland Games and capping off the season with the Seattle Highland Games.  They've done well over the summer, as a band and individually, and had a great time as well.
