Celtic Blue Highlanders

Since the band was formed in 1998 it has grown into something truly amazing. We started out with only 11 pipers and drummers, but now have 20+ wonderful members, from beginners to advanced level players. New players are always welcome! Wearing the Lock Ness tartan (like the monster), the band has impressed audiences at parades, festivals, ceremonies, and competitions. The name ‘Celtic Blue Highlanders’ was chosen because its unique just like our little town and every member.
