The Greater Richmond Pipes & Drums was founded in 1996 in Richmond, Virginia. We have grown to become the largest competition and performance bagpipe and drum band in Central Virginia. We now comprise over 40 bagpipers and drummers from Richmond, Charlottesville, Fredericksburg, Norfolk & Williamsburg.

The Greater Richmond Pipes & Drums is a member of the Eastern United States Pipe Band Association (EUSPBA), which sanctions individual and band competitions from Maine to Texas. It is one of the largest bagpipe band associations in the world.

The band currently fields both Grade III and Grade V competition groups, participating in competitions throughout the Mid-Atlantic region.

We provide lessons for beginner and advanced bagpipe and drum students alike, offering private lessons for beginning and intermediate students who are just starting. Many of our experienced pipers and drummers are involved in our highly successful tuition program, which has trained several of the most successful Grade II, III & IV competition pipers and drummers in the region.
