MCPD St. Andrews 2019 (2)
Motor City Pipes & Drums was founded in the fall of 2017 by a few seasoned pipers and drummers with the goal of becoming a skilled competition band. Our mission is to carry on the tradition of our mentor, the late Pipe Major William O’Donnell, who inspired us to be the best we could be, while sharing the love of Scottish music and the bagpipe in a family-friendly atmosphere.
This year, 2022, we decided to combine with another great band from Traverse City and are competing under the name of Spirit of Michigan Pipes and Drums. To date, we have come in second place in all three competitions we have attended, the last was against 12 other bands. We hope our success lasts for a long time.
Our ranks continue to grow and we are in the process of recruiting skilled pipers and drummers in order to put together a winning band for next season and beyond. We will also be offering lessons beginning this fall. We practice in Troy, Michigan weekly on Tuesday nights, which allows us more personal time on the weekends for family and personal gigs. If you think you might be a good fit, don't hesitate to contact us.
