MacKenzie Caledonian Pipe Band is a long established organisation comprising of a competing Grade 2 and Novice Juvenile pipe band based in the City of Dundee. 

Our primary focus is to compete at the highest level of pipe band competition whilst ensuring that we continue to teach as many local young pipers and drummers as we can.


We pride ourselves in producing great performances through our music, appearance and professional conduct.  The band can be seen regularly at a wide variety of events across the UK, from major Pipe Band Championships to local Highland Games and events at locations such as Edinburgh Castle, Gleneagles Hotel, Stirling Castle and The Royal Yacht Britannia.
