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.
We have just celebrated our Second Anniversary after a successful competition season throughout southern Ontario, culminating with a strong Second Place finish at the St. Andrews Highland Games in Livonia, Michigan.
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.
