Ceud Mile Failte!

The Desert Thistle Pipe Band welcomes you to our online presence among the bits and bytes of the world wide web!

2014 marks the 38th anniversary of the Desert Thistle Pipe Band. The band is enjoying another rewarding year of pipe band excellence!

The band will always welcome new players. If you are new to the Mid-Columbia region of Washington (or even an “old-timer”) and already know how, or would like to learn, to play the bagpipes or drums, please
contact us. The band promotes increasing the playing level and band skills of all players. Full band membership is based on ability to play the required band tunes and attendance at practices and performances. A band can never have too many pipers or drummers.
