The KPD can provide several options for your event:

-Ensemble: 2-3 pipers or 2 pipers and 1 drummer
When hiring a Bagpipe Band there are several things to keep in mind. The Great Highland Bagpipes and the drums that play with them can be extremely loud. Make sure your venue is capable of handling the volume of our band. Consider whether you would like a full band, a solo piper, or something in between. The rate for each of these varies. Our rates also vary based on the type of event we are hired for, the time of the event, and the distance to the event.
Please note – we do perform a few charity events, but we regret that, for practical purposes, we can only accept a very limited number of charity events.
If you are interested in hiring the Knoxville Pipes and Drums, please fill out the contact form below, and our business manager can walk you through what the event will cost and the appropriate band size for your event.
Thank you, and Slainte!
