Scottish Games : Pipes and Drums

Piping, Drumming , Pipe Band Competition and the Great Highland Bagpipes

Historically, the components of competition among the members of a Pipe Band have fallen into four categories. These competitions are the solo competitions for pipers and drummers; the pipe band competition; and the competition for the drum majors.

Over the years and for a variety of reasons modifications and local changes have been made to these basic segments but the fundamental categories have remained with little alteration since the early 1900’s. They are Solo Piping; Solo Drumming; Drum Major; and Pipe Bands.
