Your favorite Bagpipe Band in Orange Park and Jacksonville, FL. Serving Clay, Duval, St. Johns and Alachua Counties
Our four students Alyson, Brooklyn, Marcia and Baden, have returned from North American Academy of Piping and Drumming (Band Camp) in Valle Crusis, NC. Looking forward seeing their progression of their bagpipe playing skills. See their article in the current Aug. 2020 issue of "The Clay Piper"
Currently - First Coast Highlanders are gathering for band practice in the parking lot of Orange Park Presbyterian Church at 6:00pm on Thursday evenings. The church campus remains closed due to the COVID-19 Pandemic. As soon as we are allowed to hold traditional band practice in the fellowship hall safely we will make that announcement through email and Face Book.
SUMMER PRACTICE - With the heat and humidity rising here in Florida and because we are practicing outside, PRACTICE tends to be unbearable. And on top of all that, the virus situation is a concern. NEXT BAND PRACTICE SESSION WILL BE AUGUST 6, 2020.
