The Hong Kong Pipe Band was formed in 1982. The band welcomes into its ranks pipers and drummers who are living in Hong Kong. Current and past members of the band include pipers and drummers originally from Scotland, Northern Ireland, Wales, Canada, USA, New Zealand, South Africa and Hong Kong itself. Many of the band members have previously played in a variety of bands, including top competition civilian pipe bands, military (regular & reserve) pipe bands, police pipe bands, fire brigade pipe bands and similar.
Winners of the 2013 Singapore & Southeast ASIAN Pipe Band Championships and the highest graded band in Hong Kong, you can be assured of a great performance. For more details please read the Royal Hong Kong Yacht Club article in its September edition of its magazine Ahoy (click here).
The band now has at least 26 players, the largest civilian band in Hong Kong.
The HK Pipe Band is available for hire as a complete entity, or alternatively can provide individual pipers/drummers for functions such as Burns' Suppers, St. Andrew's Day functions and Hogmanay throughout the South-East Asia region.
