The National Youth Pipe Band of Australia
The National Youth Pipe Band of Australia is an independent, non-competing band consisting of members between 10 and 21 years of age. The newly formed band was established by two dedicated and passionate instructors who observed a missing link in the development of young pipers & drummers in Australia. Membership is made up from a number of bands, 11 in total, with pipers and drummers coming from a number of States and Territories within Australia. Each member proudly wears the uniform of the band that has nurtured their development throughout their young career .
The band promotes the expansion of the members musical knowledge and provides exciting performance opportunities on the international stage.
This is the band's first international tour and they are excited about performing for you at the 2019 Belfast International Tattoo.
We would like to thanks our sponsors, Victorian Scottish Heritage Cultural Council,
R. G. Hardie & Co., St. Kilda Australia, all the individual player sponsors from their local community and of course the members home bands that have supported these amazing young musicians. Without all their help this trip would not be possible.
