Welcome to the site of the Alloa Bowmar Pipe Band.

The band has been a major feature in the community since it was formed in 1975. The main focus of the band is, as a social group, concentrating on enjoying our music, our social engagements and performing at Social, Formal and Corporate events. These range from Gala and Agricultural days, Weddings, Exhibitions and even International Music Festivals.

This learning opportunity is afforded to individuals of all ages with an interest in traditional pipe band music.
