Cel Namh Pipe Band is based out of the area of Lancaster, Pennsylvania, USA. The band maintains the goal of fielding a pipe and drum band which can compete at a world-class level. The band promotes the culture of traditional Scottish music through regular competition, performance, parading, and student-based education. To achieve our educational goals, we operate schools of piping and drumming to educate people interested in joining the band.  These sessions are in group and are free of charge.  Band practice and educational sessions start at 630PM on Wednesdays at the Benchmark Construction warehouse on the corner of Oregon Pike and Zooks Mill Road in Brownstown, PA 17508.  If interested in joining or just stopping by please Contact Us.
