The Chesapeake Caledonian Pipes & Drums was formed in 1985 to promote the highest standards in both traditional and contemporary bagpipe and drum ensemble performance. Since then, the band has regularly participated in parades, concerts, and pipe band competitions throughout the Mid-Atlantic region.
The band wears the Ancient MacDonald tartan coupled with blue police shirts, black tie, and black waist-cropped naval mess jackets, in honor of the naval heritage of Annapolis.

The Chesapeake Caledonian Pipes & Drums is sponsored by the Robert Burns Society of Annapolis and the St. Andrew's Society of the Eastern Shore.

Practice is held every other Wednesday evening beginning at 6:00 pm.  Practice is currently being held at1588 St. Margarets Rd., Annapolis, MD  near the intersection of St. Margarets and US 50.  
We also offer piping and drumming instruction to beginners and welcome all newcomers. Please use the contact form if you’re interested in attending a practice or interested in learning the pipes or drums.
