The Keith Highlanders Pipe Band practices every Wednesday night, from 7:00-9:00pm, at the St. Thomas Episcopal School in Medina. The band is always looking for new pipers and drummers and prospective members are welcome at any band practice.

To practice in the circle with the band, new members are required to pass the minimum repertoire (KHPB settings) on their instrument:

  • Scotland the Brave
  • Amazing Grace
  • Horsburgh Castle
  • Cullen Bay
  • Orange and Blue (strathspey)
  • Keel Row (strathspey)
  • Mists of Time
  • Willie MacRae of Ullapool
  • Chorriechollies 43rd Welcome to the Northern Meeting
  • The Piper's Cave
  • I'll Gang Nae Mair Tae Yon Toon
  • Sweet Maid of Glendaruel

Interested players should come to a  practice or contact the band to get the full repertoire, including KHPB settings for the minimum set of tunes above.

Under the guidance of Music Director Greg MacDonald and Pipe Major Larry Koch, the Keith Highlanders Pipe Band has enjoyed competitive success in both the Pacific Northwest and abroad over the past several years. To compete with the band, players must achieve proficiency and comfort with both their instrument and the competition tunes.
