Pipefest Stirling: Pipe Tunes
Print, email and share the massed pipe band tunes.

Smaller pipe bands and individual players who are not marching in a large pipe band should learn the following massed pipe band tunes. Larger pipe bands, marching down the hill on their own may elect to play their own tune list. If your band has many beginners, please let us know if you would like to play the 4/4 set only.
