Welcome to the Kevin R. Blandford Memorial Pipe Band
Established in 1974, the Blandford Bands is a Bagpipe and Drum band located in the Inland Empire area of California, for 50 years and counting.
With five decades of experience, we’re gearing up for the World Pipe Band Championships in 2024. From local competitions to our journey to Scotland, the band looks forward to competing and ultimately performing in Glasgow, Scotland.
We are here to preserve and promote traditional Scottish music. Our members, representing various locations across the Western United States and Canada, are dedicated to furthering the education and enjoyment of traditional Scottish music.
Beyond music, we’re active in our community. Our members tutor aspiring musicians on bagpipes and drums on a weekly basis, and we host events such as Celtic Christmas in December.
Whether you’re a musician looking to join our Grade 3 or Grade 4 bands, want to take lessons, or just want to be a Friend of the Blandfords, explore our site to find events, membership details, and more about the Blandford Bands.
Thanks for being part of our Blandford family!
