High Desert Pipes and Drums

The purpose of High Desert Pipes and Drums is simple: to promote, practice, and perform bagpipe music and pipe band drumming at the highest possible level. We offer our distinctive music to the Albuquerque community and throughout the region in a variety of performance contexts, including parades, memorial services, exhibitions, fairs, cultural events, and competitions. The organization consists of members ranging from novices to award-winning competitors.

We are always seeking new friends and invite you to come join us!
