Appalachian Saint Andrew's Pipes & Drums

  • Massed Bands2:28
  • Amazing Grace2:28

Anyone interested in learning to play the Great Highland Bagpipes or learning Scottish Drumming is encouraged to attend a rehearsal to see what either is all about. It is not mandatory that you be interested in learning to play to attend a rehearsal, however, as our rehearsals are open to the public and we are more than happy to encourage any and all to attend one or more of our rehearsals.


Rehearsals are held every Saturday morning with the exception of the Saturday after Thanksgiving and the Saturday between Christmas and New Year's starting at 9:00 AM until approximately 11:30 AM at Saint Clare's Episcopal Church in Blairsville, Georgia, located at 777 Ledford Road. One or more of our members are normally there as early as 8:30 am, but should no one be there by 9:00 AM, please call Pipe Major Richard Smith as rehearsal may be scheduled at another location for that day. During the summer months, weather permitting, we hold periodic outdoor public rehearsals somewhere in the Blairsville, Georgia area.


From time to time our rehearsals at St. Clare's may change due to other commitments at Saint Clare's. For more information about rehearsal locations, changes to our rehearsals or scheduling, please contact Pipe Major Richard Smith at 1-770-833-5411.
