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.
The band is currently enjoying a fruitful partnership with Forth Valley College and committed to offering tuition opportunities to those willing to learn to play both the bagpipes and drums. This learning opportunity is afforded to individuals of all ages with an interest in traditional pipe band music.
The Alloa Bowmar Pipe Band have now moved to a new practice venue located within the Forth Valley College, Alloa Campus, Devon Road, Alloa, FK10 1PX . The campus, which offers its students a modern, inspiring learning environment and is equipped with all the latest resources and equipment. The high tech building is based in the heart of the Alloa town centre, making the new campus much more accessible
The band is proud of its strong friendship with “The Dutch Pipes and Drums of Tilburg” and has, over many years, been an ambassador for Clackmannanshire and Scotland in Europe and America.
