|Austin's oldest pipe band.|
The Capitol City Highlanders Pipe Band, formed in 1980, is Austin's oldest active Scottish bagpipe and drumming corps. Dedicated to preserving the art of bagpiping and Scottish style drumming, the band brings further diversity to the music of the Greater Austin area.
The band has performed at hundreds of functions through the years, and has played for dignitaries such as the Governor of Texas and publisher Malcom Forbes, as well as Prince Charles on his visit to Texas in 1986.
Available for any occasion including weddings, funerals, parties, birthdays, festivals, and parades, the Capitol City Highlanders Pipe Band is also open to beginning and experienced pipers and drummers and offers Scottish piping and drumming instruction.
