Founded in 1985, the Celtic Pipes and Drums of Hawaiʻi is the oldest existing bagpipe and drum band in Hawaiʻi. In addition to offering bagpipe and drumming classes, we perform at many civic and military functions, parades, fairs, celebrations, memorials, and other community events.
Our band is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization and all members, the bagpipe players and drummers, come from many backgrounds and ethnicity.
Celtic Pipes and Drums of Hawaiʻi began in 1985 as the Shamrock Pipe Band, but the Irish name was too limiting, and it soon came to be known by its present name. The Band's ranks have expanded through a constant training program.
