2018 Austin Piping Competition

Hello, pipers! We are a little over two months away from the 11th annual Austin Piping Competition. Hopefully your competition season is shaping up and you'll be able to fit in a visit to Austin this year.

Just a note on a change with the EUSPBA: Grade 5 pipers can compete on pipes this year, playing 2 parts of a 2/4 or 4/4 march.

We are also offering a quartet competition, which is unsanctioned. It's a great opportunity to play your competition sets for feedback.

Saint Patrick's Day 2018

It's that time of the year for good food, green beer, and, of course, great music by:

Silver Thistle Pipes and Drums

St. Paddy's day will be celebrated on Saturday, March 17th, 2018. We've done it again this year and successfully cloned ourselves so that we can play all day long and all over town.  So, come on out and see us!
