we bring scottish music and tradition to the community

scottish bagpiping and drumming

The Olympia Highlanders Pipes and Drums band was founded in 1972, and continues the tradition more than half of a century later with bagpipe and drum music. We have a friendly, community oriented mission to bring Scottish music and culture into the scene.


The band is a 501(c)(4) non-profit organization serving the community in the Greater Puget Sound area, based out of Olympia, WA, and offers free bagpipe and drumming lessons for anyone interested in joining the band. Some of the major events we attend each year include The Tacoma Highland Games, The Seattle Highland Games, Lakefair Parade, and many others.
