The Airdrie Scots Pipes and Drums (ASPD) is a “street” (non competition) band . The band as a whole is currently playing in a grade 5-4 range, and the pipe section in a 4-3 range. All pipers and drummers are welcome to join us.
The band is designed to have two levels – parade band and performance band. At this time all members are in both levels. The parade band plays Massed Band tunes and similar level marches as well as a couple of slow aires/marches. The performance band adds March-Strathspey-Reel medleys, as well as Jig Sets and Hornpipe sets to the mix.
The Pipe Section practices Tuesday Evenings. The Full Band practices Sunday afternoons. We cancel full band practices for long weekends as well as weekends when there is a Highland Games, or when we have a parade/performance. Occasionally we hold an extra full band practice the Thursday or Friday before the parade/performance as needed.
