South African Irish Pipes and Drums

The S A Irish Pipes & Drums, as the band is known today, has its roots in a time long, long before our own.

It is a fascinating history, which uncovers not just the military origins of the band, but which also tells of the birth of the Irish warpipe, the evolution of the instrument and the role it has played in Irish life and militia over the centuries. A fascinating book, in two volumes, called Clear The Way (The Military Heritage of the South African Irish 1880- 1990), by S Monick and Col O E F Baker, DWD, tells the whole wonderful story. The book can be ordered in IrishWare, the official on-line store of the S A Irish Pipes and Drums.
