City of Sheffield Pipe Band 

The band has been based within Sheffield, the ‘City of Steel’ for over 100 years and over those years the band has always performed with the exception of both World Wars.

The kilt the band is wearing below is the ‘City of Sheffield’ tartan, this was designed in 2003 with the assistance of Strathmore Woolen Mill, Scotland. The band wears it at all the events we play at.

Resplendent in our tartan the band provides a stirring spectacle whilst playing on the march or in a circle. The selection of music includes slow and quick marches, moving airs, strathspeys and reels.

The members of the band mainly live in the Yorkshire/Derbyshire area and some travel from even further afield as Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire. We also have former members of the band living in Scotland and Canada who regularly support our trips, such is the enthusiasm. The band welcomes visiting players of all levels and offers a particularly warm welcome to children, young people and student players from abroad during their time in the UK.
