Officially founded in 1978, Highland Light is the oldest pipe band on Cape Cod. The band started to come together a few years before that, and have been delighting audience since. Read more about the history of the band and how you can be a part of it.

The Highland Light welcomes new members, either experienced pipers and drummers or those looking to learn. We offer both bagpipe lessons and drum lessons to people looking to learn the instrument, and a challenge for the experienced players looking to better themselves. If you're interested in joining the band, get in touch with Sheldon Hamblin, the pipe major, for more details.

A Big Thank You

We would like to extend a huge thank you to Falmouth Toyota for once again showing their support for the band, and the Scottish Arts by sponsoring us this year. As a non-profit teaching band, we have many expenses that go along with instruction and uniforms for our students and members alike. This year, we've got a large group of new students who will need to be outfitted with uniforms, reeds, drums, and drum sticks, as well as maintaining the rest of the bands equpiment and the help from Falmouth Toyota goes a long way. When you're looking to learn to play the pipes, join our family, and when it's time for some new wheels, head over to Falmouth Toyota, and make sure you let them know we sent you!

This year, we've got a new sponsor to tell you about! Tiny and Sons Auto Glass has graciously sponsored our performance in the Plymouth Thanksgiving day parade. Performing, for us, is a great way to share the Scottish culture and music with folks who may otherwise never get a chance to hear the pipes. Unfortunately, it's expensive to outfit everyone, teach new students, and keep the culture alive. Thankfully, we're able to continue with the help of donations from companies like Tiny and Sons. Tiny and Sons has been around almost as long as we have. They're a great business that invests in the community, so when you're in need of some auto glass, windshields, side mirrors or door glass, give the team at Tiny and Sons Auto Glass a call!

The band performs throughout Cape Cod and South Eastern Massachusetts at various parades and concert venues. If you're interested in coming out to see us, check the calendar of events for the most up to date schedule. The band is always looking for new opportunites to demonstrate the power and beauty of the Great Highland Bagpipe to new audiences. You can hire the full band, or a mini-band, by talking to the band manager, Doug MacLeod. The band also has members that excel with solo performances, including memorial services, weddings, and other special events. If you're looking for a piper to stun an audience for your next special event, or make your next parade or concert a wee bit more Scottish, invite Cape Cod's oldest pipe band.
