DRUMMING WITH

Welcome to Cincinnati Caledonian Pipes and Drums. We are one of the oldest pipe bands in the U.S. and continue to promote and preserve the Scottish Celtic cultural arts through free group lessons in piping and drumming. To get started drumming with us, just read through the following information, and email me with any questions or comments. Thanks and good luck.    Regards, Jeff Craig

   These are available for purchase at our
   practice.  See one of the current snare
   drummers for details on getting a  good
   pair of matched sticks. Tenor and Bass
