An Introduction & short history of the Highlands Pipes & Drums:

Prior to 1999 a few piping and drumming enthusiasts joined together periodically for major functions such as Anzac Day in the Southern Highlands. This group then approached Rod Parker of Moss Vale to instigate a pipe band. Rod is a well-known piper throughout Australia and has played in many of the NSW bands. As a result of this approach the Highlands Pipes and Drums was formed and began playing in public on Anzac Day 1999. By 2008, the band fields on average, twelve pipers, seven drummers and a Drum Major. In 2013 the band has reduced to a nucleus of 6 pipers and seven drummers. Renewed efforts are in place to rebuild numbers by contact with local schools. Being a local Southern Highlands community organization, The Highlands Pipes and Drums encourages young people to join. Lessons in Piping and Drumming are available for anybody wishing to learn the art. READ MORE HERE.
