|Website of the Hong Kong Pipe Band. Individual pipers / the whole band are available for hire throughout the South East-Asia region.|
The civilian Hong Kong Pipe Band, which was first formed in 1982, is currently undergoing a revival. The band welcomes into its ranks pipers and drummers who are living in Hong Kong. Current and past members of the band include pipers and drummers originally from Scotland, Northern Ireland, Wales, Canada, USA, New Zealand, South Africa and Hong Kong itself. Their full-time jobs are just as varied and include engineers, an accountant, a quantity surveyor, a school teacher, university students, two serving police officers and a number of businessmen. They have previously played in a variety of bands, including top competition civilian pipe bands, military (regular & reserve) pipe bands, police pipe bands, fire brigade pipe bands and similar. During the 1980s and 1990s, the band wore kilts in the Ancient Caledonia tartan, however in 2005 the band changed tartan and is now wearing the modern MacLean of Duart.
