Practices

The Scots Highland Pipes & Drums was founded in January 1975 by George Kinney and  Fredrick Davis as the Scots Highland Bagpipe Band. 

    
  The band's first public performance was in a parade in Ashburnham on June 1, 1975. They had four pipers, 2 side drummers, a bass drummer and a Drum Major. 
      The early band members decided on a military style uniform, featuring a Royal Stewart Kilt, Khaki shirt, black belt, a day-wear Sporran, Balmoral Cap, black shoes. white Spats, Royal Stewart hose tops and a short plaid.  They wore a white tunic for colder weather. In the late 70's they switched to horsehair Sporrans and Glengarries and dropped the short plaid. The uniform has changed little since, a white shirt has been added for indoor use.
