The Baton Rouge Caledonia Pipe and Drums

This talented group was the first Baton Rouge pipe band to march in our parade starting in 1987. The Caledonians are Baton Rouge’s original pipe band who for almost four decades continue in high demand for both performance and instruction. Hear for yourself why the judges award Louisiana’s only competition level pipe band such high scores against some of the best bands from across the South. This dedicated group is serious about teaching and bringing you the very best of that soul stirring music unique to the great Highland bagpipes. Beginners and experienced musicians are always welcome. Anyone interested in learning more about performance bookings or taking up the bagpipes and Scottish drumming is invited to contact them through their web page or email pipe major Stan Masinter.
