We are Saskatchewan's northern-most highland pipe and drum band and have been proud to perform at community events around Saskatchewan, Alberta, Manitoba, as well as events in New York City, France, Holland, and Beijing, and Shanghai China.  Our band is well known in the area for our performances of the top hits of the 1700's and 1800's.
Welcome to our website!  On this site you'll find information about our performances, our repertoire, and how to book us for your community event.
