traditional & military scottish bagpipes & drums
The Somme Battlefield Pipe Band was raised in 1989, under French associations law dated 1901. The objective is to promote the music and history of the Scottish soldiers and their Regiments during their time in Northern France and the Somme Area in 1914/1918, but also during the second World War, where many of them paid the ultimate price.
Each musician of the band, piper or drummer, wears proudly and worthily the uniform of one of the Scottish Regiments present in the Somme area during the conflict. Our tunes are mainly traditionnal Scottish and Irish airs.
The commemoration ceremonies we attend throughout the year are many and varied; from the small private acts of remembrance to large international events in participation with delegations both civil and military, including many veterans associations from around the world (United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, United States of America, France, Belgium, Holland, Germany, South Africo, New zealand, etc...). The band also takes part to citys and villages festivities, celtic and folk festivals in France, UK, Belgium, Germany, Italy...
