Based in Orlando. Avail. for all types of performances. The band will travel to meet needs. See website for pictures and sound bytes. A 501(3c)3, Not for profit organization. Black Thistle is a relatively young Pipe Band compared to the other competition bands it faces at the highland games. The one thing that has helped the band to establish itself among the other seasoned pipe bands so quickly is its focus on quality playing. The members of the band have made a strong commitment to playing to the best of their ability. Which means lots of individual efforts and sacrifices. Most of the band members have or are still competing at the solo contests to help them improve. While the band does compete mainly throughout Florida and the S.E., they have been to Scotland in 2001 and 2003 and are planning another trip for 2005. While in Scotland, the Band competes at The World Championships and usually 2-3 other local contests. The band is open to all new and experienced pipers and drummers. Lessons are available to students that show continuous improvement. Please email the Pipe Major for more info. The band not only competes but they also do many other types of engagements. If you have inquiries about weddings, parades, conventions etc., please contact us through the Pipe Major link on the home page or click above for fees and other info. Have a look around the website and come back from time to time for updates. We’ve included a video link for the folks who are interested in joining or hiring the band. It’ll give you a rough idea of what we look and sound like. Thanks for your visit!
