Our history

The Dutch pipes and drumss from Tilburg have been set up in 1953 as a juvenile pipe band called 'De Scotjes', as a tribute to their Scottish liberators of the 15th Division in October, 1944. 

Because the small 'Scotjes' had become grown up 'Scotsman', the band decided to change the original name to 'Dutch pipes and drums'.


What we do

Dutch pipes and drums have performed at many different venues all around Europe and beyond. We are well known for our traditional shows with highland dancers but also love to bring our combined band or rock band along.

So if you are organising a concert, (military) tattoo, commemoration, street parade, wedding or birthday, contact us for a booking. We are looking forward to working together with you!
