Welcome to the home of
Rothbury Highland Pipe Band

We created this website to raise awareness and build interest in the Pipe Band

 Below is a group photo of band members from a couple of years ago

 Rothbury Pipe Band - early days - (photo circa 1930's)

The Pipe band was formed in 1920 but Rothbury folk, as can be seen from the old photos below, have a history of music, and the village has enjoyed singing, dancing and playing instruments for a very long time.

 

 

Rothbury Brass Band

Music is in the blood of local folk and the Pipe band was a natural progression from the old Rothbury Brass Band.
