The Cincinnati Caledonian Pipes & Drums Band (CCP&D) was established circa 1912, making us one of the oldest pipe bands in the United States. The mission of the band is to preserve and promote appreciation of Scottish culture and heritage through Highland Piping and Drumming. CCP&D meets its mission by performing at public events, sponsoring instruction in Scottish cultural activities such as music and dance, and teaching free, quality lessons in Scottish bagpiping and drumming. The band is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.

CCP&D is proud to be a part of the Greater Cincinnati community and regularly performs at local and regional parades, cultural festivals, benefits, sporting events and other venues. Check out our calendar for our upcoming appearances. Highlights of past performances include playing with: The Black Watch, the Cincinnati Pops Orchestra, Rod Stewart, playing the half-time show for the Cincinnati Bengals, opening the Cincinnati Celtic Festival and leading the annual Cincinnati St. Patrick’s Day Parade. The band is available for hire for your special event.
