Find a band

If you want to learn to play the pipes or drums, find a band to join, or find pipers to hire in your area, then you’ve come to the right place.

The Twisted Thistle has created a database of Australian pipe bands to keep a comprehensive list of bands of bagpipes and drums in Australia.

Having made that bold claim, the Pipe Bands Australia Website also has links to branch areas, where you can find lists that are probably more up-to-date than ours is (we do our best, but our minions need to sleep sometime).

If your band or group isn’t included here and you’d like us to add you to the list (it’s free!), then please contact us.
